After the coronavirus pandemic, another thing that will hit European football and leave football fans begging for breath is the transfers of Liverpool talisman Sadio Mane to Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain wonders boy Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool.
If these two deals and Jadon Sachon 100 million pounds move to Manchester United scale through this summer, this year’s summer transfer window will be the most lucrative in the history of transfers.
The craziest of them all is the interest Premier League side Liverpool has in 21-year-old French international Kylian Mbappe . Before the Premier League club can be able to secure his signature, the club may have to put a whopping £250million on the table.
Mbappe still has two years in his contract with PSG but it has been a dream of most Liverpool fans to land the hot forward in Anfield.
The money Maths between Sadio Mane and Kylian Mbappe
The Frenchman could be Mane’s direct replacement if the Senegalese moves to Real Madrid. So, before Liverpool can drop £250million for the PSG star, Mane’s move to Real Madrid must have gone through which is very feasible.
Yes, just like Liverpool fans want to keep Mane and still have Mbappe, Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is a big fan of Mane and he is reportedly ready to drop £150million to secure the services of the reigning Africa player of the year.
Mane still has two years left in his current contract with Liverpool and fans at Anfield adore him. Besides that, he has won all the major trophies with Liverpool except the league title which the club was very close to winning before the pandemic interrupted the season.
But the only thing which could be bothering the management of Mane is whether it will be easier for him to win Ballon d’Or in Spain than in the Premier League.
Though Liverpool through the club manager Jurgen Klopp said they may not cough up £250million for Kylian Mbappe, if Mane moves, the current Premier League table topper will have no choice than to do the needful.
Besides, money should no longer be the problem since the club just signed a very lucrative new kits deal with sports wears maker Nike. But it is left to see how much the club is willing to sacrifice in order to maintain its dominance in the Premier League moving forward.
