Liverpool forward Sadio Mane’s “big dream” is to wear the shirt of Real Madrid, according to France Football journalist Nabil Djellit.
The reporter claims that the La Liga club is the only team he would consider leaving Anfield for, but it would take a massive fee for the Spanish team to get their man.
Mane’s valuation is said to have more than tripled since his arrival from Southampton in 2016, and it is believed it would take at least €150m (£132m) for the Reds to even consider selling their star forward.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is known to be a big fan of the Senegalese international, but France Football assert that a lot would need to go in the Spanish side’s favour for a move to go ahead.
The global health crisis will make financing the deal difficult enough. Real look set to lose substantial revenue, even if the season is completed behind closed doors, and they have already asked players to take salary cuts of up to 20% to ensure non-playing staff get paid.
