Liverpool held negotiations with No.7 France international

The Merseyside giants could reportedly try offering Sadio Mane to PSG in their offer to seal the transfer of Kylian Mbappe. This is according to a report, which states that the Reds have some concerns over keeping Sadio, so could try to make the most of that situation by using him as bait in the France international deal.

Mane has been a hugely important footballer for the Reds in recent times and his departure would undoubtedly be a blow, but Liverpool supporters would sleep more easily if he was replaced by Kylian. Mbappe is an elite talent and would be an impressive signing to this Reds squad for many years to come.

Parisians could also accept losing the 22-year-old forward if they were able to replace him with a top winger like Mane, who could undoubtedly flourish in Mauricio Pochettino’s side alongside the likes of Neymar. The French star has recently been linked with Reds, while Parisians may need to sell their best footballers due to financial problems.

This certainly looks like it will be one to watch in the months ahead. Nobody needs telling just how good the World Cup-winning winger is, he has 39 caps for the Les Bleus at the age of 22, he’s scored in a Mundial final as a youngster and he’s generally seen as one of the best young forwards in the world.

Unfortunately, this signing is far from a foregone conclusion, it seems as though some of the biggest clubs in the world are ready to compete with the Reds for his signature. Either way, this is definitely a situation that is worth keeping an eye on in the coming months.
