Liverpool look to Mbappé if Real Madrid capture Mané

Could it be Sadio Mané out and Kylian Mbappé in at Premier League giants Liverpool?

Rumour Has It: Liverpool consider Mbappe if Mane joins Real Madrid

Liverpool are reportedly looking at Kylian Mbappé in case they lose Sadio Mané to Real Madrid.

Mane has developed into one of the world's best players at Liverpool, leading to apparent interest from Madrid.

But the Premier League leaders are considering a huge signing if the Senegal international does head to the Santiago Bernabéu.

Madrid are said to be determined to sign Mané and Liverpool are targeting at Paris Saint-Germain star Mbappé as a replacement, according to some in the UK media.

The report says Mané is not pushing for a move away from Anfield and the Reds are keen to see off Madrid.

Mbappé, 21, has been linked with Los Blancos previously, but perhaps Liverpool could land the France international.
