Mane adviser: Messi wanted him at Barcelona last year
Sadio Mane's adviser Bacary Cisse has revealed he came close to joining Barcelona in the past.
Mane left Liverpool for Bayern Munich last week.
Cisse told RMC: "Last year, Mané could have signed for Barcelona.
"It was Leo Messi who demanded the signing of Mané from Barcelona in the negotiations.
"He gave two names: Sadio Mané and an Argentine central defender."
Cisse also confirmed during the interview that Messi's current club PSG made an attempt this summer before he joined Bayern.
