The Senegalese international has developed into one of the game’s most dangerous attackers under Jurgen Klopp – or indeed the best player in the world.
Real have contacted Mane’s representatives to sound them out over a potential move, according to Le10Sport.
Senegal international Mane still has three-and-a-half years remaining on his Anfield contract and recent reports suggest both he and the club are keen to extend.
But this hasn’t stopped Madrid, who are reportedly plotting a move for 27-year-old and have made him their ‘priority’ transfer.
Patrick Vieira has slammed the Ballon d’Or result which saw Mane finish in fourth place, as he believes his “decisive” performances for Liverpool in the past 18 months merit a higher finish.
