Manchester United are keen to sign Sadio Mane from Southampton and the Red Devils haven’t given up on the winger despite Southampton boss Ronald Koeman stating the player won’t be sold in January, according to reports.
Squawka via inta Sport press claims Manchester United are ready to offer more than £25m for the Senegalese international and are keen to submit a bid for him in January.
Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has ruled out the sale of the Senegalese international but the Red Devils are still keen to test the club’s resolve.
Louis Van Gaal has indicated that he’d love to add pace and creativity into his squad in January and has been linked with a move for several midfielders.
Mane, 23, is known for his speed and directness and it is claimed that Van Gaal needs the winger as he could stretch opponents with his pace.
The midfielder already has three goals to his name this season and has created 22 chances for his teammates this term.
Manchester United are interested in strengthening their squad in January after losing to newly promoted Bournemouth last weekend.
