Rumours around the transfer market around Real Madrid keep spreading, especially now with the international break. Los Blancos cannot fight for any title this season, so the focus is on finishing in the best way possible and thinking how to reinforce the squad for the next season. There, Zinedine Zidane will be a key person to convince the stars to join the current European champions.
However, it will be almost impossible with Kylian Mbappé. This week, France Football published that Los Blancos prepared a bid for €280M for the French star. However, the striker is an impossible dream, according to the top sports betting sites. The odds of getting the PSG forward are so high, something that tell us the real difficulty of the challenge.
Therefore, Florentino Pérez needs to seek an alternative. Eden Hazard is always a target and the Belgian playmaker said several times that he would love to join Real Madrid. However, if Gareth Bale leaves, the president needs another attacking player to reinforce this area of the game. There, another important name arise: Saido Mané.
Last season, before Zizou left Real Madrid, the manager asked several times about Mané. The manager wanted him as a replace for Gareth Bale after his great season with Liverpool, arriving to the Champions League final. However, the Frenchman finally decided to quit and leave Real Madrid, and the club lost interest. Now, according to the Spanish newspaper Marca, there is another possibility.
The winger is completely focus in the end of the season, especially now that Liverpool are still fighting to touch silverware in the Premier League and the Champions League -the Reds face Porto in the quarter-finals round-. But Los Blancos are following him and might be preparing an offer at the end of the season.
Mané renewed his contract until 2023 recently and he’s still a very young player -only 26-. So Real Madrid would have to pay a high amount of money to get Mané out of Anfield. But the African player is use to change club and could see Real Madrid as a big opportunity in his career to win more titles. Southampton, Red Bull and Metz had been his clubs and he has only won two Austrian leagues and Cups.
