Liverpool Transfer News: Zinedine Zidane looks to bring in Reds forward to replace Gareth Bale in Real Madrid and have reportedly made contacts with him.
Under Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid are aiming for a domestic and European revival. For such a rebuild to occur, the club needs to have the right players. It seems that Zidane has already identified the players he wants in the club.
Zinedine Zidane led Real Madrid to three consecutive Champions League victories in his first reign before being displaced by Liverpool in Europe last season. The Frenchman now aims to bring in one of their star forwards in their folds in a bid to strengthen his squad.
Real Madrid contact Sadio Mane
According to French outlet Le10 Sport , Real Madrid have reportedly made contact with Mane and his representatives over a summer move to the club. Los Blancos will look to pair the former Southampton man up with talisman Karim Benzema in attack.
The report claims that Zidane himself has spoken to the Senegalese in a bid to convince him to jump ship. However, it is unlikely that Mane will leave the Anfield for the Bernabeu. At least, not when the club are performing as well as they are right now.
Last season’s Premier League Golden Boot winner is on course for a first Premier League title with Liverpool while a 3rd Champions League final and possibly a second consecutive European success is also highly probable. To leave when the club is on song is not something one would expect of Mane.
In the off chance that Mane does agree to swap his Red for Madrid’s whites, it would also require a huge financial compensation for Liverpool to even agree to the deal. Therefore, the likelihood of a move is too slim at least at this very moment.
