The Reds will face a tough battle with Real Madrid to keep Sadio Mane, according to The Sun.

It is claimed the Senegalese's representatives have already been approached by Los Blancos for informal talks.

While Liverpool are determined to fend off Madrid, Mane could be tempted to join Zinedine Zidane at the LaLiga giants.

As such, it is believed the forward could reportedly join Real for a fee of £150 million (R3.4 billion), with Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group set to go all out to replace the current African Footballer of the Year with Mbappe.

The Frenchman, though, is expected to cost £100 million (R2.3 billion) more, but his arrival could be partly funded by new Liverpool kit sponsors Nike, per The Sun.

Nike are the Reds' official kit sponsors from next season, replacing New Balance, and Mbappe could become the new face of the Anfield-based club.

It remains to be seen whether or not there is any truth to the reports after Jurgen Klopp insisted in December 2019 that there was "absolutely no chance" his club could afford Mbappe, who would expect lofty wages of around £400 000 (R9 million) per week and is also being chased by Real.
