With the recent upsurge in the form of Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, it is not exactly unexpected that Real Madrid are beginning to look his way once again. Who in his right senses will not want such a player star in his squad?
And of course, with Zinedine Zidane back as the Real Madrid Manager, players like mane will always be on his radar. It is however not the first time the Madrid gaffer had shown interest in this player.
It is a fact that this same Mane was a target for Zidane before his departure from Real Madrid earlier in the summer, and now that he’s returned, he is back on the Mane hype train. It is not a secret that the 26 year old has been arguably the Reds’ most influential player this season, and he seems to be going from strength to strength.
Now according to a recent report from France Football, Real Madrid have renewed their interest in the Liverpool star. It was well known that they were sniffing around Anfield a few months back over the possibility of going after Mohamed Salah, but now, their attention has changed course.
It will be recalled that Mane joined Liverpool back in 2016 from Southampton, and at the time, he joined the club following a string of poor signings. With expectations at an all time low, the Senegal international has been able to perform better than anyone could’ve imagined since his move became official.
However, if Real Madrid eventually decide to go after him, it would likely take some serious bidding and a real solid fee to tempt him away from Liverpool and no one would be surprised if we end up having another “Coutinho style” saga on our hands sometime soon because the Reds will surely not allow another star player of theirs to leave the team so easily.
In spite of all that though, a move to Real Madrid is surely a very tempting one especially now that “Zizou” Zidane is back on the seat as manager.
