Barcelona ‘identify Liverpool star Sadio Mane’ as Lionel Messi transfer replacement

Barcelona are reportedly eyeing a move for Liverpool star Sadio Mane, with the forward ‘willing’ to move to the Nou Camp to replace Messi.

And according to TMW (via Sport), Liverpool’s Mane is ‘willing to replace Messi’ this summer, with the La Liga giants ‘eyeing’ the Senegalese forward.

The 28-year-old – who has previously been targeted by Real Madrid – would not come cheap, with Liverpool demanded a fee of no less than £107million.

Mane has played under new Barca boss Koeman before when the pair were at Southampton, and has reportedly refused to sign a new Liverpool deal that has been on the table for the last nine months.

The Senegalese’s current deal expires in 2023, although Anfield chiefs fear that Mane’s refusal to sign extended terms may mean that he will be on his way out of the club.

The latest contract offer is believed to be around £220,000-per-week, which is a similar amount to that earned by Virgil van Dijk. But at 28, Mane will be aware that his next deal may well be his last big payday.

Should Mane leave or stay?

Let’s get talking.
