Both of these players are on the rise in France and have the potential to become the next superstars of their countries. Both have dreamed of playing for Real Madrid. After all, many past Ballon d’Or winners played for Real Madrid. But which one should they choose? Here are three reasons why Sadio Mane might be the better choice:
Liverpool’s Sadio Mane
If Real Madrid get Kylian Mbappe, they will get another world-class forward in the process. But what are the other options for Real Madrid? They could sell Sadio Mane, who has one year left on his Liverpool contract, or they could sign Liverpool’s Sadio Mane. Real Madrid are looking for a new ‘galactico’ and are looking to sign one of the world’s best strikers.
The rumours are already circulating about a summer transfer window. One of the most high-profile players to leave Liverpool is Sadio Mane. He joined the club in 2016, and has already scored 120 goals for the Reds. His contract expires at the end of next season, and he has won six trophies at Anfield. If Real Madrid do get Mane, they are sure to win at least one more trophy.
The Real Madrid team has been linked with a transfer for Sadio Mane for a while. They have spoken to Mane’s representatives, and the two sides have discussed the possibility of a deal. Obviously, Mane’s transfer would be expensive, but Real Madrid have been linked with the player since last summer. Besides signing a French player, the Spanish giants are also expected to land Liverpool’s top-class striker, Kylian Mbappe.
While Mane has been impressive for Liverpool in recent years, the French side have been searching for a superstar to replace him. In that time, Mane has surpassed Mohamed Salah as their best player. Mane has the potential to make an impact on any team. But Real Madrid will have to wait a few months for this to happen. A good signing will make up for Mbappe’s lack of success last season.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min has a three-year contract at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and is eager to win trophies. However, a deal for Mane may not be as easy as Real Madrid’s first choice. Mane’s deal with Liverpool expires in June, and Bayern Munich are now considered the favourites to sign him.
Real Madrid’s pursuit of Lewandowski
According to Don Balon, Real Madrid are pursuing the Polish forward. While they’re not the first team to pursue Lewandowski, they’ve been linked with a move to the Spanish capital in recent months. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are keen on signing the Poland international, who is currently on the last year of his contract. In addition to Lewandowski, Real Madrid also have been linked with other players such as PS154m star Erling Haaland.
While Lewandowski is said to be interested in a move to the Spanish capital, it’s not clear why he’d want to join Real Madrid. The former Bayern Munich star has long dreamed of playing for Real Madrid, and his desire to play in Spain is strong. Benzema and Varane are enduring examples of the type of players Real Madrid wants to sign. Other players linked with Real Madrid include David Alaba, who left his home club to move to the Spanish capital.
The Spanish media have speculated that Real Madrid could make a massive bid for the striker. A report in Don Balon claims that Lewandowski would cost PS97 million. While this is a massive amount of money, these reports should be taken with a grain of salt. However, there is no reason to think Real Madrid will not pursue Lewandowski if Karim Benzema decides to leave.
Benzema’s move to the Premier League has also been rumoured. But if Benzema leaves Paris, the French club may want Lewandowski as well. While Real Madrid may be tempted to offer Lewandowski a huge fee, they have never been put off by high demands. The Polish international would link up with Cristiano Ronaldo and form a formidable frontline. Besides Lewandowski, they’ve also been linked with Paulo Dybala, Kylian Mbappé, and Pierre-Emeyang.
Despite the rumors, it’s hard to find a way to justify this hefty price tag. After all, Real Madrid already have Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski. In addition to their pursuit of Lewandowski, they’ve also been rumoured to pursue other players in the world’s top five. The rumoured transfer could be the perfect opportunity to strengthen their squad.
Ousmane Dembele’s future at Real Madrid
The long-term future of French forward Ousmane Dembele at Real Madrid remains uncertain. The Belgian has long been linked with a move away from the Camp Nou. Other potential new clubs include Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea. However, Spanish media has suggested that Dembele is leaning towards a stay at the Camp Nou. Let’s take a closer look at the situation.
The contract of Ousmane Dembele expires on June 30 and the Belgian international is expected to leave Barcelona for a free transfer. A supporter has spotted the midfielder with a Real Madrid shirt. The French international has previously been linked with Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund. But Xavi Hernandez’s recent switch to PSG suggests that he might not be staying.
It’s no secret that Barcelona are scouting potential targets for the summer transfer window. However, it appears that a deal with Dembele could not be reached before then. Despite the fact that Barcelona have been in a bidding war for Dembele, Florentino Perez has made it clear that the French international is not interested in leaving the Camp Nou. So what will happen next?
If Mbappe does leave the club, a statement signing must be in the works. However, a big wage bill would have to be involved to bring him back. And, of course, the signing of Erling Haaland will create competition for places. That said, he is a good target for the Spanish giants. So, while the move is unlikely to happen, he remains a desirable option for the club.
Erling Haaland’s future at Bayern Munich
Despite his outstanding form for Dortmund this season, Erling Haaland is likely to be a key target for Bayern Munich. The German club have been digging into Dortmund’s ranks for several years and have yet to acquire Haaland. Although Haaland is still only 24 years old, the forward has become one of the world’s best young attacking players. However, the Rekordmeister has become increasingly demanding of his wages and would probably have turned down a move to Bayern.
However, the German club have not given up on the striker, with Man City and Real Madrid being reportedly keen. Bayern Munich have also been linked with a move for Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski, who is due to leave for Spain at the end of the season. The Belgian has scored 18 goals in 20 Bundesliga appearances and is yet to hit the form of his former club, Molde.
In addition to Man United, Haaland has been linked with Chelsea in the past. Haaland was close to signing a contract with Manchester United last summer but chose Dortmund. The move to Dortmund has been a success for both sides. However, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel recently admitted that he would like to sign the Norwegian, despite the fact that Haaland is a senior player. Earlier in the year, the Chelsea boss said it was unrealistic to sign Haaland.
The Norwegian has already signed a contract with Manchester City for PS500,000 per week. Manchester City have missed out on signing Harry Kane last summer and have signed Julian Alvarez, but Haaland is still a priority for the club. The arrival of Haaland would further boost the attack for Pep Guardiola. The Norwegian striker has not said anything about his future with Bayern Munich. A new deal could be possible, however, as he has already met with representatives of the German club.
Borussia Dortmund have already signed the Swedish international after holding secret talks with the German side. Bayern Munich have a PS75 million release clause and are keen to sign him. This clause means that the German club have the chance to sway Haaland away from Dortmund. However, Dortmund will also try to lure Chelsea ace Timo Werner away from the Bundesliga. The former boss of the Dortmund club, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has a long history of taking the best players from Dortmund.
How will Sadio Mane’s departure to Real Madrid affect Liverpool? After all, Salah’s contract expires in 2023, and his pay rise is misleading. However, Liverpool do still believe they can bounce back from their loss to Bayern in the 2018 Champions League final. After all, they did win the competition twelve years later. And in the past, Sadio Mane has started three Champions League finals and scored in one. So, if he goes to Real Madrid, the Reds could be on the verge of a resurgence.
Sadio Mane’s contract expires in 2023
Liverpool’s three main forwards are all out of contract in the summer of 2023, with Salah, Firmino, and Sadio Mane all on the verge of leaving the club. Recent reports have linked Barcelona and Bayern Munich with the coveted midfielder. But with speculation mounting about the future of the pair, the Reds have opted to wait and see.
In the 2021/22 season, Mane and Salah have been in solid form for Liverpool. They’ve been key in their side’s run to the UEFA Champions League final, but both players have had a lull in form in recent weeks. Regardless, the duo will play key roles for the Reds on the night in France. So, the decision to extend Mane’s contract may depend on the club’s desire to keep both players in the team.
Mohamed Salah has made headlines for almost a year now. While Liverpool have made it clear they know what Salah wants, Mane’s contract expires in 2023. This situation has given Salah’s contract more importance than Mane’s. But it’s crucial to keep the two in Liverpool. If they lose Mane, it will seriously hurt the club’s title hopes.
Although Sadio Mane’s contract expiry date is still a long way off, there’s little Liverpool can do to stop him from leaving. The club’s best hope is that he stays at the club until 2023, but if that doesn’t happen, it will be costly for the Reds. Barcelona and Real Madrid are both interested in signing Sadio Mane, but the question remains, will Liverpool be able to keep him?
Salah’s pay rise is misleading
Mohamed Salah is demanding a 2.5-times pay rise at Liverpool. The Egyptian has been outstanding for the club, scoring over 100 goals and providing 35 assists in the past four seasons. He is also a leading figure in the Champions League, with three goals short of the club’s record of 30 Champions League goals set by Steven Gerrard. Despite his huge salary, the latest reports of his demands for a pay rise are confusing.
The pay rise is not an indication of his actual worth. In fact, Salah will probably leave the club after 2023. His pay rise is simply a way to show that Liverpool are prepared to spend big to retain the Egyptian. The player is also likely to leave Anfield after that. He could earn as much as PS400,000 a week by hitting individual and team targets. So if Salah is worth PS400,000 a week, he is hardly fooling anyone.
Despite his huge pay rise, Salah’s contract at Liverpool is not a long-term one. The contract will keep him at the club until 2025 and will see him earn three-hundred to four hundred thousand pounds a week. Although Salah’s contract is not particularly long, it could force the club to extend his contract with a higher salary. It may be tempting to think that Salah will remain at Liverpool, but if he leaves in the summer, it will be a real nightmare. It could even make Salah’s future uncertain.
Liverpool fans may not be celebrating Salah’s new contract. After all, he’s a multi-millionaire, so a contract extension makes sense. Yet, Salah’s pay rise is still misleading, as it’s not tied to individual prowess. There’s no release clause in Salah’s new deal, and this is a very poor way to reward a player for a lackluster season.
Mohamed Salah’s future at Liverpool is in doubt
The future of Mohamed Salah at Liverpool is in doubt after reports linked him to a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona. The Egyptian has been linked with a move to one of those two clubs and is preparing for his sixth season with the Reds after joining from Roma. It is not yet clear where he is headed next, but a deal for Salah is almost certainly on the cards.
In terms of money, there isn’t much of a problem for Salah. He has already scored three goals in as many games for Liverpool, and he’s also tied with Mane for the Premier League’s top scorer. However, the contract Salah has signed will last until the end of 2021, so a move to another Premier League side is unlikely to take place. Salah’s future is far from certain. But it is important to note that Liverpool’s transfer policy is strict, and it will do everything in its power to protect its superstar.
In other news, reports have claimed that Salah is set to leave the club this summer. Salah’s future is in doubt following the departure of Sadio Mane, and Liverpool are open to offers in the region of PS60million. Mane had one year left on his contract and eventually left the club for Bayern Munich for PS35 million. While Salah’s future at Liverpool is a bit unclear, Carlo Ancelotti is keeping a close eye on the situation.
It’s likely that the move to Real Madrid will sway Mane’s decision to stay at the club. It’s possible the two sides’ recent statements will have an effect on his decision. If Mane stays, it would be a fantastic treble. In addition to winning the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, the Reds could even win the Premier League, a position that a club like Liverpool can’t ignore.
Salah’s replacement could be Divock Origi
Liverpool are looking at the Porto winger Otavio as a potential replacement for Divock Origi. The 27-year-old winger has been linked with a move to Anfield after impressing in the Champions League semi-final win against Barcelona. His departure from Liverpool would make room for a new signing, and Milan are reportedly keen on a deal.
While Salah was Liverpool’s first choice striker for two seasons, Origi has been linked with a move to AC Milan. He has played 107 Premier League games for the Reds, and has scored 22 goals. He started just 34 games, but his contributions were significant. He scored late goals against Everton and scored the game-winning goal against Tottenham in the 2019 Champions League final. However, the move to AC Milan is reportedly a mistake because Salah is a better option for the Reds.
The French newspaper L’Equipe had named Origi in their worst team of the season in 2015, but the German international has since surpassed expectations. The Reds’ fans have been chanting his name as the game finished. Salah has been a star at Anfield since joining, but it seems that he may be the perfect replacement for the Belgium international. After all, Divock Origi has already become an icon.
The emergence of Origi’s star power in Belgium has prompted speculation about Origi’s future at the Reds. He joined the club as a teenager and subsequently signed with Liverpool. The club subsequently sent him on loan to Lille for PS10 million, where he spent the rest of last season. And then, Lille re-signed Origi on a season-long loan.
Mane’s transfer to Real Madrid is a game-changer
Sadio Mane’s transfer to Real Madrid is no small deal for the Reds. The Senegalese has expressed his desire to play for Spain’s biggest club, and it is hard to argue with the prestige. The only thing is that Real Madrid are willing to spend a fortune to sign Mane. If Mane is keen on leaving Liverpool, the deal could be as large as EUR40 million, which is a huge sum.
The recent Champions League final has made Sadio Mane’s future at Liverpool even more uncertain. With just a year left on his contract, the striker would be available for a cut-price transfer this summer. Real Madrid, as well as Bayern Munich, have already been scouting Mane in the transfer market. Mane has also been linked with Barcelona. His potential move to Real Madrid makes sense after the Reds’ disappointing transfer of Kylian Mbappe.
The transfer to Real Madrid of Sadio Mane is unlikely to be a total success for both clubs. Liverpool’s desire to keep Mane, despite the fact that the player is integral to their system, has created a price tag of 230 million euros, which is higher than the record set by Paris Saint-Germain to sign Neymar. Real Madrid have already signed a high-performing centre-forward in Karim Benzema, so the Spanish giants could consider Mane as their third forward.
With a fine record of 97 goals in 218 appearances, Sadio Mane has become a key figure in Liverpool’s success in the Champions League. In addition, he has helped the Reds return to the Champions League, where they had a long wait before winning the league again. He has also contributed to their success in the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
