France Football: Sadio Mane dreams of Real Madrid move with Zinadine Zidane as long-term admirer of Liverpool ace

If Sadio Mane leaves Liverpool, the forward's likeliest destination will be Real Madrid, France Football reports.


As per the reliable French source, the 28-year-old dreams of playing for the Whites one day with Zinedine Zidane also keen on his services.


The report adds that Zizou wanted to sign the Senegalese prior to the manager's exit from the Santiago Bernabeu in 2018. 


Mane emerged as a target for the Whites last month when the Mirror, a UK tabloid, linked Madrid with a €160m move for the Premier League star.


Even though Paris Saint-Germain remain an option for Sadio, he's likely to pick Madrid over the Parisians as the interest between Mane and Zidane is a 'mutual' one.


Liverpool value their prized asset at €150m. Nevertheless, the Reds are not willing to offload the Senegal international who is tied with the Merseyside club until 2023.


Mane moved to Anfield in a €41m transfer from Southampton in the summer of 2016 and has gone to score 77 and set up 34 goals in 161 appearances since then, including 18 strikes and 12 assists in 38 outings this  term.
