Real keen on Mane
Liverpool could face a battle to keep Sadio Mane as the player is said to be keen on a switch to Real Madrid in the summer.
The Reds forward has been in stunning form, firing home 11 goals in his last 11 games for the club, and the Spanish press claim he is high on the wanted list of Zinedine Zidane, following his return to the Bernabeu.
Liverpool will have no intention of cashing in, but the same reports claim that Mane is attracted to the idea of playing under the leadership Zidane and would be open to a move if they firmed up their interest and made an offer.
The Merseyside giants have been in this position before with Philippe Coutinho and refused to sell for some time before the player finally got his wish of a move to Barcelona.
It has not worked out for Coutinho, who could be sold by Barca in the close season, and Mane should take note that dream moves do not always go to plan.
Mane is fully focused on winning the Premier League and Champions League with Liverpool for now, but he could have a decision to make in the summer.
