- Real Madrid have reportedly named Liverpool forward Sadio Mane as primary transfer target
- Club boss Zinedine Zidane is considering signing the Senegalese forward in place of Chelsea's Eden Hazard
- Mane has netted 20 times this season with 17 coming in the English Premier League
Real Madrid are ready to renew their interest to sign Liverpool forward Sadio Mane in the summer.
According to UK Sun citing Marca, Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane was eager to land the 26-year-old Senegalese last summer, but could not seal the deal before leaving his role at the Bernabeu.
And after returning as Real Madrid boss last month, the Frenchman, who is on his second stint with the Galaticos is set to table a £73m offer this summer.
The Spanish giants are also eyeing Eden Hazard from Chelsea.
However, the Blues' two-window transfer ban from FIFA may not allow the Stamford Bridge landlords free the Belgian, forcing Real Madrid chiefs to opt for Mane.
The Senegalese has been improving every campaign since his switch for €41.2m fee, from Southampton to Liverpool, netting 53 times along with 21 assists in 111 matches for the Reds.
Mane has netted 20 times this campaign with 17 coming in the English topflight.
The Senegalese is valued at 85 million euros in the Transfermarkt, but Liverpool will be eyeing more than the €150m they sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
Jurgen Klopp's side are presently at the top of the Premier League table after their win against Tottenham.
Liverpool also battle Porto in the Champions League quarter-final this April and Mane will be looking forward to claim the silverware after last year’s defeat by Real Madrid.
