Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane is a big fan of Liverpool star Sadio Mane.
The head coach has recently ‘requested’ Mane as he wants Madrid to sign the Senegal international this summer.
Mane has been outstanding since the start of the year scoring 11 times.
The Senegal international, who signed a new deal in November to keep him at Anfield until 2023, has once again emerged as a target for Zidane, who returned to the Santiago Bernabeu , having left after last season’s Champions League success.
However, according to Marca, Liverpool are paying little interest in Mane and will reject all overtures.
Upon inking his new deal, Mane stated: “I have made the best decision in my career.”
“It is a great day for me and now I am looking forward to everything – to helping the team, to helping the club achieve our dreams and, especially, to win trophies.
“I’ve always said, when I knew I had a chance to come here I didn’t have to think twice. The right club in the right moment and with the right coach as well. I came here and was very happy.”
