Real Madrid 'cannot afford to sign Sadio Mane'

Real Madrid will be unable to afford Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane during this summer's transfer window, according to a report.

Real Madrid will reportedly be unable to afford Liverpool's Sadio Mane during this summer's transfer window despite Zinedine Zidane's interest in the attacker.

Zidane is allegedly desperate to bring the Senegal international to the Bernabeu, with the Madrid boss viewing him as the ideal player to operate alongside Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema in the final third.

Liverpool are thought to be fearful when it comes to the 28-year-old's future as he is yet to signal whether he would be prepared to sign a new long-term deal at the club.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Los Blancos would not be able to afford to sign Mane this summer due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

The report claims that Zidane has been told to 'concentrate on moulding the raw talent' of Brazilian youngster Vinicius Junior rather than pursuing a deal for the Liverpool forward.

Mane has scored 19 times and registered 12 assists in 40 appearances at club level this term.
