Real Madrid identify Liverpool attacker as top summer target

Sadio Mane news

Mane wanted by Real Madrid

Real Madrid will reportedly make an ambitious attempt to sign Sadio Mane from Liverpool when the transfer window reopens at the end of the campaign.

The Senegalese has enjoyed another top campaign with the Merseyside giants and he has already contributed 18 goals and 12 assists across all competitions.

Overall, he has registered a tally of 77 goals and 34 assists since his move from Southampton in 2016 and the consistency in terms of the performances has definitely caught the eye of Los Blancos.

According to The Mirror, Los Blancos' hierarchy are desperate to pursue Mane from the Reds this summer and they have already contacted the player's representative regarding the same.

Mane only signed a new long-term deal with the European champions earlier this season but Los Blancos are still confident that they can persuade the Reds to sell the attacker with a club-record £130m bid.

Jurgen Klopp's side are reportedly eyeing a summer move for RB Leipzig's Timo Werner and that could possibly contribute to the departure of the ex-Southampton man.
