Real Madrid Make Sadio Mane 'Top Transfer Target' And Set To Offer Astonishing Fee
Real Madrid have reportedly told Sadio Mane's representatives they are looking to sign the Liverpool star this summer as the Spanish giants plot an eye-watering fee to lure him away from Anfield.
Zinedine Zidane is a huge admirer of the Senegalese forward and Los Blancos believe they can secure his luxurious services for a whopping £140 million.
According to Mirror, Real Madrid have made contact with the 27-year-old over a sensational summer move.
Mane has three years left on his current contract, but Zidane is confident the club can snap him up with a massive transfer fee.
Mane is enjoying another prolific season in front of goal for Liverpool. He's weighed in with 18 goals in all competitions, including 14 in the Premier League.
He won the Premier League Golden Boot last season after his impressive 22-goal haul.

Real Madrid aren't the only team in the market for a new attacker as Mane's side have reportedly expressed an interest in signing RB Leipzig ace Timo Werner.

And Jamie Carragher reckons Liverpool don't need to let anybody go to fund a new signing.
"No, they don't need to let anybody go, they just need to add to the squad that they've got," he explained.
"Don't forget that Liverpool never signed a player last summer so you would think there is a lot of money there waiting to be spent.
"Jurgen Klopp is maybe just waiting that another yet on, some players have got another year older and then he can maybe refresh it.
"He gave [Divock] Origi a new contract so he couldn't go and buy a new player on the back of that.
"Now I definitely think it's time for Liverpool to reinforce, certainly in the attack," Carragher added.
"It will keep the front three on their toes but also rotate them, maybe rotate them and also you've got to think about the African Cup of Nations.
"I think it's almost certain that Liverpool sign a top attacking player, it's just who."
