Mane, a Senegalese, was one of Liverpool’s most impressive performers in their Champions League-winning campaign of 2018/19, and even won the Premier Golden Boot alongside and Mo Salah.

Diario Gol had earlier claimed Real president Florentino Perez was continuously probing the Merseyside giants about Mane.

Talks between Real and Manchester United over a deal for Pogba have stalled due to the Premier League giants’ asking price.

“If Pogba does not come, there will be trouble, for Zidane he is the most important player, after (Eden) Hazard, to be signed this season,” said Okdiario’s chief pundit Eduardo Inda.

“You can not buy Pogba at the price of (Kylian) Mbappé, it’s crazy.”

Real are willing to go as high as €125m for Pogba, though United are demanding closer to €160-170m.
