Liverpool have rubbished reports that their forward, Sadio Mane has agreed on personal terms to join Real Madrid.
Mane was linked with a shock move to Real Madrid by France Football, which claimed that the Senegal international was awaiting the green-light from the new Real manager.
France Football had reported that the agreement was reached before Zinedine Zidane decided to quit as head coach.
The Senegalese was a pivotal member of Liverpool’s team and helped the Reds reach the Champions League final this season, where they met Real.
Liverpool have responded to the claim, branding the transfer move as ‘nonsense’.
The Mirror UK quoted the club as saying that “Liverpool have no intention of selling Mane and will not allow the forward to exit the club under any circumstance this summer.”
Liverpool also insisted that “there is no truth to the rumours that Mane wants to join Real Madrid and has already come to terms with them.”
The Reds manager, Jurgen Klopp would be devastated to lose Mane to Spain, after watching the speedster enjoy an excellent season.
Mane bagged 20 goals in 44 appearances and also laid nine assists for his team-mates.
