Vinicius Junior to Liverpool? It seems like a tempting transfer deal for the Merseyside Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, but it will mean giving up in-form ace Sadio Mane.
Real Madrid are big fans of Sadio Mane after his world-class form over the last year or so, with the Senegal international winger really taking his game to a new level in recent times.
According to sources in Spain, this now means Sadio Mane has transferred ahead of big names like Kylian Mbappe and fellow Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah as one of Real’s priority transfer targets.
Reports claim Real Madrid are offering as much as €100million plus Vinicius to Liverpool in a bid to land Sadio Mane, but one imagines the Merseyside giants won’t accept that.
As much as the Brazilian starlet is a big prospect, he’s some way off Sadio Mane’s level at the moment and may never hit such a high standard.
Liverpool supporters will surely hope the club prioritise keeping Sadio Mane, with Liverpool supporters all too aware of how losing big names like Luis Suarez and Xabi Alonso to Spain’s big two has hurt them in the past.
Vinicius Junior, meanwhile, could be keen on a move to Anfield to play more regularly, with plenty of big-name attackers currently ahead of him in the pecking order at the Bernabeu.
