There’s a small group of players that seem destined to remain at Liverpool for years to come, and one of them is Sadio Mane,
The Senegalese international has flourished into one of the Reds’ best players since joining the club in 2016, and his improving form has caught the eye of one of Europe’s biggest clubs, Real Madrid.
According to El Confidencial via the Daily Mail, Mane is a ‘luxury target’ for Los Blancos who are set for one of their biggest summer transfer windows in years as Zinedine Zidane aims to rebuild Real Madrid after one of their poorest seasons this century.
The lure of Madrid will be tempting to Mane, but for Liverpool, it will have to be close to a world-record bid if the club will even think about selling their attacking star to the team that crushed their hearts in the Champions League last season.
Mane is simply too important for Liverpool to let go of for a colossal sum of money. What the former Southampton winger offers to the team is something that can’t be replaced in terms of what he brings and his relationship with attacking teammates Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
As well as what he offers, Mane is a player who genuinely loves Liverpool and has stated he hopes to become a legend of the club one day in the future.
Real Madrid might have the allure and financial muscle to bring in Mane this summer, but it will be idiotic of Liverpool to allow one of their most important players walk for financial gain.
Liverpool fans, who could replace Mane should he leave? Let us know!
