Liverpool ‘will move for £50m ex-Man Utd star Memphis Depay if Mane transfers to Real Madrid’

Liverpool are considering a swoop for ex-Man Utd winger Memphis Depay if Sadio Mane moves to Real Madrid, it has been reported.

The 25-year-old had a disappointing spell at Old Trafford but believes he can still make an impact on the Premier League.

Mane has reportedly been seduced by Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and could  move to the Bernabeu in the next transfer window.

If the Senegalese forward was to move to Spain, l'Equipe reported that Liverpool have shown an interest in bringing Depay in as his replacement.

Depay moved to Lyon in 2017 but the French club are reportedly refusing to entertain offers of less than £26million.

The winger has notched eight goals and 14 assists from 40 appearances for Lyon this season.

A number of Premier League clubs are said to be interested in Depay's services but  few could afford the fee and his wages.

Boasting an impressive 16 goals and 12 assists from 46 international appearances for Holland, his potential teammate Virgil Van Dijk will be aware of what Depay would have to offer.

Liverpool are at home to Porto in the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday before a Premier League clash against Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday.
