Liverpool won’t want to lose Mane after his tremendous impact at Anfield down the years, but the Senegal international may well feel he’s achieved all he can at the club now.
Mane has played a starring role in Liverpool winning the Premier League title this season, as well as the Champions League last term.
It seems clear the 28-year-old could make a fine signing for Real Madrid, who could do with improving their attack after a poor first season from Eden Hazard.
For Liverpool, Sarr could make a fine replacement for Mane, even if losing their star forward is a big blow.

Liverpool have previously done well to sign talented young players and help them improve under the expert guidance of Jurgen Klopp, and Sarr seems like he could have similar potential.
