The Senegalese international has drawn interest from the La Liga giants.

Liverpool have revealed their valuation for star forward Sadio Mane, who has been gaining interest from La Liga giants FC Barcelona.

According to reports, Liverpool have set Mane’s price tag as 90 million pounds, which will be difficult for any club amidst the financial crisis.

Barca are looking for possible replacements for exit-linked Lionel Messi, with Mane among them.

Furthermore, Mane is open to joining hands with Ronald Koeman, whom the Senegalese played under during his time at Southampton. The new Barcelona manager was highly influential in Mane’s formative years with the Saints.

The 28-year-old has established himself as one of the best forwards in Europe, winning the Champions League and Premier League with the Reds in the last two years.

Jurgen Klopp has forged Liverpool into a winning force with the trident of Sane, Salah and Firmino at the helm.

Mane’s impressive last season helped him achieve the PFA Fans’ player of the year award.

It will be no surprise if Mane opts to move for Barca as he has won major trophies at Anfield. The Senegalese international, who is at the peak of his powers, will find no better place than Barcelona to spend the rest of his career.

However, it remains to be seen whether the Blaugrana would fork out such an expensive fee for Mane regardless of his potential.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will not be spending much in the transfer window, confirmed by the German manager. In such an event, the onus on Mane would only increase.
