Ahead of the Champions League final tonight, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti was asked if he’s interested in signing Liverpool star Sadio Mane this summer.

The Senegal international joined the Reds back in 2016 for £34 million (BBC). He has been absolutely sensational for them over the years, scoring 120 goals and providing 48 assists in 268 appearances in all competitions.

Mane has been fantastic for Liverpool this season as well. He has scored 23 goals in all competitions and he’s a serious contender for the Ballon d’Or, especially if he helps the Reds win the Champions League tonight.

The 30-year-old will enter the final year of his contract this summer, and rumours have linked him with a move to a number of clubs, including Real Madrid.

Ancelotti responds when asked if Real Madrid will sign Sadio Mane

In his press conference yesterday ahead of the Champions League final in Paris, Ancelotti was asked about the rumours linking Mane with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

The Italian said, as quoted by The Liverpool Echo: “I can say that you are very brave asking about transfers today.

“I am not here to talk about players from other teams.

“What I can say is he (Mane) is a great player.”

TBR View:

Real Madrid will likely do something big this summer after missing out on Kylian Mbappe.

It looked almost certain for months that the French World Cup winner would move to the Santiago Bernabeu on a free transfer, but he changed his mind in the last minute, and that has left Madrid embarrassed.

Mane will have just 12 months left on his contract this summer, and a decision has to be made on his future. He’s still playing magnificently at the top level, and there’s a good chance multiple clubs will look to sign him.

Real Madrid could well be one of them, and it will be interesting to see if Jurgen Klopp will even entertain an offer for his Senegalese superstar this summer.
