Real Madrid Eyeing A Move For This Liverpool Winger: What Will He Bring To The Bernabeu?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Fichajes mentioned that Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Liverpool winger Sadio Mane. It is understood that Los Blancos are dreaming of a move for the Senegal international in the summer.

Mane’s Recent Form At Merseyside

Mane has experienced an up and down campaign at Anfield but has still managed to put in a handful of impressive displays on the left side of Liverpool’s attack. The 29-year-old has registered 11 goals and secured one assist in 29 matches for the Reds this season across multiple competitions.

The Senegalese speedster has performed well to average 3.1 shots, 1.1 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even been excellent when distributing possession in the final third after making 76.2% of his attempted passes in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).

What Will Mane Bring To Real Madrid?

Mane has still got electric pace under his belt and can make some driving runs with the ball down the left flank. He is proficient at beating his marker when left isolated in the 1v1 situation and can drive to the byline to whip in some inviting crosses towards the opposition penalty box.

The 86-time Senegal international packs a lot of power with his shot attempts and can be a streaky goal-getter in front of the opponent’s goal. He is primarily a left-sided wide player but can even function as a centre-forward or down the right-wing if needed.

A winger of Mane’s skillset and quality will undoubtedly be a massive coup for Los Blancos as they look to add more firepower to their attack this summer. However, he could disrupt Vinicius Junior’s progress at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Still, the pros outweigh the cons of signing Mane as he will bring a lot of goals and pace to Carlo Ancelotti‘s attack. Plus, he could propel them to winning the UEFA Champions League trophy once again next season. Thus, the Madrid giants should think about orchestrating a move to bring the Liverpool star to the Spanish capital when the transfer window reopens at the end of this season.
