Blade doesn’t think Mane will be at Liverpool “forever”.
Senegal international Keita Balde is convinced Sadio Mane could be lured away from Anfield by LaLiga giants Real Madrid. Liverpool forward Mane is now one of the Premier League’s most prolific forwards since he joined the Merseyside club from Southampton in 2016. According to several reports in Spain, Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has made the Senegalese his top target for the next transfer window and is willing to sanction a deal to bring the 27-year-old to the Santiago Bernabeu. However, AS Monaco winger Balde says it is possible Mane will seek pastures new. “I don’t know what his decision is,” Balde told AS. “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.”

“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.”
Mane's compatriot Diomansy Kamara recently urged him to leave Anfield if he wants to fulfill his ambition of winning the Ballon d'Or in the future.
