Real Madrid will go all out to sign Sadio Mane this summer after getting nowhere with Kylian Mbappe and a €80m winger wants to join Mikel Arteta at Arsenal, all in the Euro papers.



Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane will reportedly go hard after Sadio Mane this summer after being told Kylian Mbappe is not for sale this summer.

French outlet Le10Sport report that PSG will not entertain talks about Mbappe, forcing Real to switch targets to Liverpool ace Mane. They claim contact between Real and Mane dates back to July 2019.

With Mane closing in on Premier League glory with the Reds and with the Champions League already in his possession the outlet claim at 28, he has “a unique opportunity to take up a new challenge”.

And for Real boss Zidane the prospect of bringing Mane in this summer is an ideal solution with Karim Benzema 33-years-old next December.

Jurgen Klopp “even has a very specific idea for his successor” – RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner and they suggest that Klopp has decided to ‘personally involve’ himself in the proposed deal to sign Werner by ‘calling him a number of times’ in order to explain his project.
