AS Monaco winger Keita Balde has admitted he doesn’t see his Senegal teammate Sadio Mane staying at Liverpool ‘forever’, amid interest from Real Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane has reportedly made the Reds star his top transfer target this summer, and is willing to sanction a £140million deal to bring him to the Bernabeu.

Mane has been in scintillating form for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, with his 14 goals and seven assists in the Premier League helping fire Liverpool to within two wins of their first league title in 30 years.

When asked if his international teammate could join Madrid, Balde told Spanish outlet AS: ‘It depends on many things. I don’t know what his decision is. In a year or two, you may want to change.

‘I don’t think he wants to be there forever. He is a smart boy and he knows what is good for him and what he has to do. But in Madrid they are giving out many names.’

Mane’s contract at Anfield doesn’t expire until the summer of 2023, meaning any club that comes in for him will have to pay a substantial fee.

Balde believes it would take a sizeable offer to lure him away from Merseyside, adding: ‘The coach loves him very much. He has given a lot to Liverpool and Liverpool to him.

‘Something very attractive has to come for him to leave Liverpool. A big team would have to come and promise him many things to think about it.

‘He’s a great boy. He deserves the best. He is humble and nobody has given him anything. He deserves to be where he is today,’
