Liverpool forward Sadio Mane could be open to move to Real Madrid, according to Senegalese president Saee Seck.
Mane is currently on an international level with Senegal at the Africa Cup, where they meet Tunisia in the semi-finals on July 14.
The 27-year-old has been linked to a move to LaLiga during the last year, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona reported to be interested in signing the former Southampton player – and Seck seems to have opened the door to more speculation.
In an interview with Daily Mirror In Cairo, he said: "He played in Southampton, and when the chance came, he moved to Liverpool.
"He has risen to the challenge in England.
"Everyone knows it Mane is in the top ten of the world's football players, and he has achieved great success with Liverpool in the last year.
"He now has the chance to come to Madrid and I know that Zidane likes him, so why not?
"A footballer career is short, and Real Madrid is the best club in the world."
