Date published: Wednesday 1st January 2020 9:19

Real Madrid have already made contact with Liverpool star Sadio Mane, while Tottenham are ready to make a £30million bid to land a Leicester man, all in the papers.



Real Madrid have made contact with representatives of Sadio Mane over a summer transfer, according to Le10Sport.

The French outlet claim that preliminary talks between Los Blancos and Mane’s representatives with Real looking for some new attacking talent.

Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez are likely to see their careers at the Bernabeu come to a close in 2020 and Zidane is chasing Liverpool’s star man as a replacement.

Madrid have their sights set on signing a Galactico next summer and they are making plans now to try and lure Mane to LaLiga.

The 27-year-old attacker is under contract until June 2023 and the left winger, who signed for Liverpool for £34million in 2016 has developed into one of the best wide attackers in the world.

The report also claims tentatively that Zidane has already spoken to Mane directly to inform him of his plan to lure him to Spain.
