France Football: Zidane insists on signing Mané

19 Mar 2019

Sadio Mané is the number one option for Zinedine Zidane to strengthen Real Madrid’s attack, according to French outlet France Football.

According to the same French media source last summer, Mané was on the verge of signing for Los Blancos last year until Zidane’s shock resignation brought a halt to the operation.

Now the French coach, who returned to the Bernabéu last week following the sacking of Santiago Solari on the promise he would have full control over transfer decisions, is insisting the club sign Mané in a bid to reinforce his front line for next season.

Scorer of Liverpool’s lone goal in the 3-1 Champions League final defeat to Madrid last season, the 26-year-old winger joined The Reds from Southampton in the summer of 2016 for 41 million euros. Last November he renewed his contract with the Merseyside club until 2023, which saw his annual salary increase to 8 million euros.
