Real Madrid have turned their transfer attention to Sadio Mane after growing frustrated with Kylian Mbappe’s talks with PSG, reports suggest.
Frustrated at PSG refusing to negotiate over French World Cup winner Mbappe, Bernabeu boss Zinedine Zidane is said to be leaning towards Liverpool’s £131million-rated Mane.
And it is believed only Real could tempt the Senegal star to exit Liverpool.
France Football has already claimed the 28-year-old was unhappy at Anfield since Jurgen Klopp is pushing Reds team-mate Virgil van Dijk for the Ballon d’Or award ahead of him.
Now, Le10sport say Zidane is now looking in the way of a huge bid for Mane in the next transfer window – then a move for Mbappe in the summer of 2021.
Real reportedly first made contact over Mane last July, and now, Zidane has a need for a successor to France forward Karim Benzema, who is 32.
The Reds are keen to keep Mane after his explosive form replaced that of Mo Salah as their top man in attack.
