Liverpool warned they must find replacement before selling Mane

Liverpool great Steve Nicol has warned the club over selling Sadio Mane.

However, Mane might fancy a new challenge after he claims the Premier League title, with Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid ready to spend big in the summer.

"That's only any good if you bring in Timo Werner," Nichol said of Mane's possible move.

"Unfortunately there aren't many [players like Werner] around. What if Werner wants to go elsewhere?

"The way it's being talked about is if it's done. 'Timo Werner says he wants to go, so it's done'.

"Guess what, there was a guy called Kylian Mbappe who told everyone he wanted to go to Real Madrid, he ended up at PSG."

RB Leipzig striker Werner recently opened up on how proud he was to be linked to the European champions, which hints that he is open to a move.
