Momo Sissoko has claimed that Sadio Mane will leave Liverpool to join Real Madrid and reckons the Senegalese attacker is perfect for Zinedine Zidane’s side – which has left a whole host of Liverpool supporters concerned on Twitter.
Mane, 27, has been in stunning form for Liverpool once again this season – scoring 18 goals and creating 12 more in assists. The former Southampton star has been continually linked with a move to Zinedine Zidane’s side.
Real are struggling out wide. Eden Hazard has suffered another injury that is expected to keep him out until the summer, as the Belgian fails to replicate his stunning Chelsea form. Gareth Bale is clearly not Zidane’s preference, and he is likely to leave.
It means Real are on the lookout for a new winger and Mane has emerged as a reported target. Now, former Liverpool midfielder Sissoko has told Italian outlet Europa Calcio that he reckons Mane will move to Madrid in the near future.
“Real Madrid on Salah? No, I see Sadio Mané more, because he possesses the characteristics that Zidane wants, he values him very much; I think Sadio Mané will go to Real Madrid,” Sissoko said.
Liverpool are expected to add to their squad this summer, despite securing a Champions League trophy and expected to become this season’s Premier League champions. Timo Werner, Kylian Mbappe and Jadon Sancho have been heavily linked.
Liverpool supporters have reacted on Twitter to the news that their former player has suggested Mane will leave the club, and are concerned that a move could actually materialise.
Wouldn't surprise me tbh

I absolutely Agree with you but Mane’s priority is his PEOPLE so obviously a lot of money and other factors which I don’t know may lead him to go
But I don’t see it with KLOPP n that’s a fact

He has nearly won everything with Liverpool so far, so he wont be surprised by these rumors because he is already in a place where he deserves to be, continue developing, performing at the highest level and make it a norm to continue winning lots more.
