Real Madrid contact Liverpool star

13 time UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid have engaged in transfer talks with the representatives of Liverpool and Senegal star Sadio Mané, according to Le10Sport.

There are rumours that Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and Sadio Mané have already spoken, with the French legend informing Mané of his desire to sign him.

With Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez reportedly near an exit, Los Blancos are looking for a replacement, choosing Senegal star as the next Galactico.

Madrid are building the foundations of a summer move for Mané, who is valued at $171 million by Transfermarkt.

The 27-year-old joined Liverpool from Southampton for $46.97min in the summer of 2016, so it is highly possible that Liverpool could sell him for over three times as much as they paid for him.

Although he primarily plays on the left wing, it is possible that he could slot into a central role in Madrid.

Mané has emerged as the key player for Liverpool in 2019. He scored 26 goals in the 2018/19 season and has already netted 14 goals this season for the Reds.
