There are strong reports linking Senegalese forward Sadio Mane with player plus £200 million swap deal to bring Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool football club.
Mane was initially linked with a move to Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid but French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain won’t mind having him if they are willing to pay the price or sacrifice Mbappe for him.
Despite the fact that Sadio Mane has been consistently giving his best on the field for Liverpool, there is a big doubt over his loyalty to the club for not allowing himself to be tied to the club on a long-term contract. The manager of Liverpool FC, Jurgen Klopp is reportedly not happy that the 28-year-old forward has failed to sign the lucrative contract extension the club offered him in 2019.
Though based on his current contract with Liverpool, he still has over a year to stay at the club, Klopp is not satisfied as he wants to be sure of Mane’s future at the club before he adds him to his long term plan.
The Senegalese forward is currently worth £150 million in the transfer market and the board of Liverpool would not mind making a serious profit from him amid the coronavirus pandemic. Still, his contribution to the team through the years has made it difficult to offload him to one of his numerous suitors.
Klopp wants to rebuild his current squad which has won the UEFA Champions League in 2018-2019 season and in the verge of winning the club’s first Premier League title in 30 years. But reports say his rebuilding process would not warrant him to throw away the players that have been making it happen for the club especially a consistent player like Mane.
Also, the German tactician desires to bring PSG’s Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool but the price-tag on his head which is reportedly close to £300 million, has made it almost impossible for such a desire to be granted.
Hence, the board of the club is considering making it happen through a swap deal that will see Mane move to PSG while Mbappe moves to Liverpool. The Premier League side will not only lose Mane for the most valuable player in the world, but a whopping £200 million will also be added to bring the 21-year-old Frenchman to the Premier League.
Nothing has been made official yet but it is a kind of deal that will break all existing transfer records and set new ones that will be almost impossible to break in the nearest future.
