Liverpool hero linked with La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid and Barcelona

Posted by

Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane is being linked with a summer transfer to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Mane has been a key player for Liverpool in their greatest period since the Premier League began, but the acquisition of Luis Diaz from FC Porto has raised doubts over his continuation at the club.

While Jurgen Klopp could never have too many talented attacking players, Diaz was a hefty investment and operates almost solely on the left wing. It’s unclear if there’s room in the side for both he AND Mane.

As a result, the Senegalese penalty shootout hero could be set to pursue a move away from Liverpool in the summer, with Fichajes reporting that both Real Madrid and Barcelona would be interested in signing him.

Mane is understood to have a desire to play in La Liga, with both Real Madrid and Barca likely to be in the market for attacking reinforcements when the transfer window opens at the end of the season.

A move to the Santiago Bernabeu could hinge on where Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe end up, but there are potential options on the table for Mane, which will no doubt be a concern for Liverpool supporters.
