Real Madrid & Liverpool’s Sadio Mane: Zinedine Zidane’s transfer target

Real Madrid & Liverpool’s Sadio Mane

Liverpool have been placed on high alert on Monday by Spanish paper Marca.

Marca claim that Zinedine Zidane has told Real Madrid that he wants to sign Sadio Mane this summer.

Links between Los Blancos and Mane aren’t new. According to the rumour mill, Mane has previously been a target for Zidane.

So will Real Madrid finally sign the Senegalese forward this off-season?

How much would Sadio Mane cost?

Marca note that Liverpool are well versed in selling their stars to the Spanish giants.

Previously Liverpool sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for 142 million pounds.

The good news for Real Madrid is that Mane’s price tag is reportedly much lower, at around 85 million euros.

Liverpool are also in a strong position when it comes to holding onto Mane.

The forward is under contract at Anfield until 2023.

Liverpool & Memphis Depay

Liverpool have been advised to try to sign former Man United winger Memphis Depay.

The case for Depay moving to Anfield has been made by former Arsenal star Robert Pires. The French World Cup winner said:

Depay wants to come back to the Premier League and he feels he has unfinished business in England.

He perhaps feels he wasn’t given a chance to perform and earn the right to stay longer considering he was so young and showed glimpses of undoubted potential.

Depay might want to return to Manchester United or he might be motivated to prove them wrong by performing for one of their rivals in the Premier League.
