Liverpool star Sadio Mane is reportedly a target for Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane ahead of the summer transfer window.
The winger is in scintillating form for the Reds and fired them back up to the top of the Premier League table on Sunday afternoon as he scored in their 2-1 win over Fulham.
Mane’s form appears to have attracted attention from one of Europe’s most prestigious clubs, too. According to France Football, as cited by GFFN via Twitter, Real are keen.

Zidane is known to be an admirer of the winger and it seems the Frenchman would be interested in bringing him to the Bernabeu Stadium in the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old has found the back of the net on 17 occasions in the Premier League this term and will be desperate to get his hands on some silverware with the Reds in the coming months.
Why Liverpool must keep Mane for years to come
He's a world-class talent
Mane is a world-class player. That much has been proven by his displays this season, and Liverpool have to retain his services.
He's still growing
Mane hasn’t stopped developing since he joined Liverpool, and he still has room for improvement. This should be exciting for the Reds.
He's vital to the style
Jurgen Klopp’s style is so effective because of players like Mane. He’s a vital piece in the German’s attacking jigsaw at Anfield.
Liverpool would have a serious problem replacing Mane. He’s invaluable to this side and is a fundamental part of Klopp’s plans in the long and short-term at the club.
