'Mane will leave Liverpool for Real'

English Premier League

Sadio Mane has been tipped to join Real Madrid while the exit of Mohamed Salah will benefit Liverpool, according to a former Reds midfielder.

Mane and Salah are ranked as two of the most valuable footballers in the game since developing into world-class performers in the Premier League under manager Jurgen Klopp.

Having won the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League and led the Reds to the cusp of the Premier League title before the suspension of the competition - the pair are well on their way of earning legendary status.

However, Mohamed Sissoko feels that neither of the African forward's will see out their careers on Merseyside.

"I see Mane at Real Madrid [more than Salah]," the 33-time capped Mali midfielder told EuropaCalcio.

"He [Mane] has the characteristics Zidane wants... I think Mane will go to Real Madrid.

"I don't know if Salah will continue at Liverpool. But if he left, his departure could be good for the team.

"Liverpool are very smart and would know how to replace him."
