Signing Sadio Mane was on the agenda for the Merengues’ manager, but Liverpool would be unwilling to let him go and would charge an exorbitant transfer fee all the same.
Real do not want to spend in excess of 100 million euros to sign Gareth Bale’s replacement, simply because the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder would not yield that much to them.

Aubameyang transfer worth is projected to be 85 million euros- an amount well within budget for a prime player.
The Gabon international’s contract in north London runs until June 2021 and he has been vocal of his desire of playing with Los Blancos since his Borussia Dortmund days.
