Officials at Liverpool Football Club are playing down suggestions that Sadio Mané is close to signing for Real Madrid.
Reports originating from France claim that the 26-year-old agreed terms with the Spanish giants prior to the Champions League final but that a deal has been held up due to Zinedine Zidane’s shock resignation.
It is claimed that only a transfer fee needs to be ironed out between both clubs and that Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez will reassess the situation once a new manager is in place.
The Reds have been quick to respond to the reports by dismissing them as “nonsense”. They also claim that Mané will not be allowed to leave the club under any circumstances due to the 3 years remaining on his contract.
