Sadio Mane is “ready” to join Real Madrid according to his former Southampton team-mate Oriol Romeu.
This kind of thing happens every transfer window; Reds fans get anxious about star players having their heads turned by Europe’s biggest clubs.
The transfer rumour that won’t go away is Mane to Real Madrid. Apparently Zinedine Zidane has named the Senegalese star as one of his main targets after returning to the Spanish club.
And Romeu believes Mane is ready to be next up in that trend. “He is ready,” the Saints midfielder told the Daily Star. “Madrid are a little weak in attack and he’s the type of player that does a lot of damage in open spaces.
“He could help them reverse their current situation. He brings variation in attack, but he’s not a prolific goalscorer like Cristiano Ronaldo, who goes well above [other forwards].”
From a completely unbiased perspective, he’s absolutely right; Mane is an unbelievable player and has been unplayable for large segments of this season.
He’s somehow managed to up his form from last year when he bossed the Champions League.
From a completely biased perspective, Real Madrid should forget about it because he’s ours.
