Liverpool forward Sadio Mane a 'Real Madrid objective'

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane is on the list of ‘luxury targets’ for Real Madrid this summer, according to a report in El Confidencial.

Returning Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is said to be a long-term admirer of the forward – who has netted 54 goals in 115 appearances for the Merseyside club.

Last month, France Football reported the Coach, who returned to the Madrid hotseat this month, is a fan of the Senegalese attacker and he subsquently is an objective for Los Blancos.

A similar report followed in Marca that Mane was a ‘primary target’ for Madrid while the latest information claims that the club will pursue a deal should the player express a desire to join them.

The 26-year-old has struck 18 goals this season and the same report claims Los Blancos had monitored a deal for the former Southampton man last summer, before Zidane’s departure.

Mane struck in the Champions League final between the two clubs last May, a game in which Madrid ultimately ran out 3-1 victors.

The forward has a contract at Anfield through to the summer of 2023 having joined the club from Southampton in 2016.
