Zinedine Zidane Wants To Sign Sadio Mane For Real Madrid In The Summer

Prior to his surprise departure from Los Blancos in the summer, mere days after beating Liverpool to the Champions League for the third time in a row, Zidane was desperate for Real to sign Mane and it looked as though a deal was possible.

However, the club pursued other targets when Zidane took a break and Julen Lopetegui came in as the Frenchman’s replacement.

But now that the Frenchman has returned to the Santiago Bernabeu to try and fix the mess Real find themselves in, France Football say he wants to finally secure Mane’s services.

Mane’s value has skyrocketed since Real first registered interest in him, with the Senegalese international scoring 17 goals in the Premier League and currently sitting joint-second in the race for the Golden Boot.

With teammate Mo Salah struggling of late, Mane has stepped up big time with 11 goals in his last 11 games, including a sensational brace in the Champions League round of 16 second leg victory away at Bayern Munich last week.
