Real Madrid are said to have added Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to their transfer shortlist for if they cannot sign Kylian Mbappe.
According to AS, Los Blancos have drawn up an extensive list of potential Galacticos.
Mbappe is at the top of the list. Real Madrid will fight until the end of the market to get their man.
However, there are a series of others being eyed up if they cannot reach a deal to sign the PSG star.
Among these are strikers Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandowski and Harry Kane.

Yet they are also taking note of wide forwards, like Raheem Sterling and Kingsley Coman, as well as the Liverpool duo.
These are all said to be Plan B’s.
Interestingly, the outlet claims that Liverpool will listen to Madrid if a huge offer is made.
Would Mane or Salah to Real Madrid and Mbappe to Liverpool be a good deal?
This latest development could spring an almighty transfer merry-go-round.
It seems clear that Mbappe will be leaving PSG next year at the end of his contract. We do not believe that Madrid will be able to sign him this summer.
So does this mean that the La Liga giants will be moving onto their other targets this summer?
To us, it is more likely that any serious movement will happen next summer.
A possibility is that Mbappe chooses Liverpool next summer and Madrid sign either Mane or Salah, which will help the Reds fund his wages and signing on fee.
Essentially, Mbappe’s decision will have a huge impact on the future of numerous people.
Considering the age differences, it would make sense for Liverpool to do this.
The next 12 months are certainly going to be very interesting on the world football landscape.
