Zinedine Zidane wants to sign Sadio Mane for Real Madrid after returning as manager, France Football reports.

The 26-year-old has scored the most goals in the Premier League from open play. His form over the last couple months has ensured Liverpool haven’t fallen behind in the title race.

In fact, his goal in the first half and penalty-winning presence in the second won the game against Fulham on Sunday. The Reds returned to the top of the table as a result.

While Liverpool fans are delighted at his current form, it will more than likely cause a stir across Europe. In fact, a report from France Football suggests that Zidane still wants to sign him for Real Madrid.

‘Zizou’ was interested in signing Mane before he decided to leave the Bernabeu. His appreciation for the Senegalese forward clearly hasn’t diminished as he is apparently keen on signing him at the end of the season.

 

France Football claims Los Blancos will ‘relaunch’ their attempts to attract Mane to Spain. Liverpool must resist all offers they receive for any key players this season as now is the time to push on and not sell and reset.

The sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona should be the last big name to leave the club for a few years. Mane has proven his worth tenfold this year and should not be allowed to leave.

Liverpool are on the cusp of reestablishing themselves as one of the powerhouses of Europe but this won’t be possible by constantly selling their best players.
