Liverpool star Mane has shot to the top of Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid transfer wish list as Los Blancos prime themselves for a big summer ahead. It has been a torrid campaign for the La Liga giants so far, with Zidane their third manager of the season following the dire spells of both Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari. Real Madrid crave a big-name attacker this summer, with Los Blancos yet to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus. And Mane, who is enjoying another fine campaign at Liverpool, is being eyed. However, Spanish outlet Ok Diario say that the Reds have demanded a huge £196m to let the Senegal international go. Jurgen Klopp is building a dynasty over at Anfield and is reluctant for one of his most important players to depart. And Ok Diario director Eduardo Inda has claimed that Liverpool have ALREADY scared off Real, who have responded by stepping back. "One of the priorities for Real Madrid is Sadio Mane,” Inda said. “A player who has been asked for by Zidane. "The only problem is that Liverpool has asked for 230 million euros. "Madrid have spoken with Liverpool and they have given him this number. “In Madrid they have said that they [Liverpool] have gone crazy.” Meanwhile, Mane’s former Southampton team-mate Oriol Romeu has backed the Liverpool star to move to the Bernabeu.  “Yes, he is prepared (to make the jump to playing for Real Madrid),” he said. “Madrid are a little weak in attack and he’s the type of player that does a lot of damage in open spaces. “He could help them reverse their current situation.” Mane has scored 17 goals from 30 league games for Liverpool this season and will face former club Southampton on Friday (8pm).
