The Brazilian star was a target for the Catalan giants all summer, but Liverpool refused to budge and managed to cling on to their “Little Magician”.

But now, Klopp will have yet another battle on his hands as Zidane is hoping to land Senegalese star Mane in the near future.

Reports in Spain claim Real are constantly keeping tabs on the flying winger – who’s impressed Galacticos chiefs with his speed and direct style.

At only 25-years-old, Mane would prove a comparably youthful addition for the La Liga side.

However, Diario Madridista say Los Blancos will face competition from Barcelona – who see Mane as an alternative to Coutinho.

Mane had got off to a stunning start to the 2017-18 campaign, scoring in all three of his first three Premier League games.

The Senegalese forward was sent-off in his fourth game against Manchester City for catching goalkeeper Ederson with a high foot.

Mane is set to serve the final game of his three-match ban as Liverpool take on Leicester on Saturday evening.

He should return for Tuesday night’s Champions League clash with Spartak Moscow, as well as next weekend’s game with Newcastle.

Did you know Harry Kane is the only English player in the world’s top 55? But do Mane or Coutinho make the cut?
