Real Madrid ready to poach Liverpool’s talisman

Real Madrid are ready to rebuild their attack for next season and the target is Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, according to report.

Los Blancos manager, Zinedine Zidane is a huge admirer of the Senegalese and have asked the hierarchy of the club to try and bring him to the Bernabeu.

The 28-year-old has scored 19 times with 12 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool this season and finished the previous season as joint topscorer alongside club teammate Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Mane helped Liverpool win the Premier League for the first time since 30years and after helping the Reds emerge European champions they are allegedly fearful that Mane could decide to leave Anfield this summer.

Liverpool have offered Mane a new long-term deal, but he is yet to offer any indication that he will pen fresh terms. And this has given Real Madrid the confidence that they can wrap-up a deal for the former Southampton star.

Mane has 78 goals for Liverpool with 34 assists in 163 appearances and will be involved on Thursday night when the new premier league champions face the dethroned, Manchester City.
