Zidane angry with Real Madrid president Perez refusing to pay Mane price

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is refusing to give up on his bid for Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane.

Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking on El Chiringuito, revealed Zidane and president Florentino Perez is at odds over the Frenchman's transfer recommendations.

"Zidane has differences with the board about (Thibaut) Courtois, as he wanted to continue with Keylor (Navas)," said Inda.

"(Manchester United midfielder Paul) Pogba, who is closer than we think, and Mané, for which Liverpool has asked €200m and Florentino has said no."

Zidane is insisting Real shell out for Mane, but Florentino and his board are insisting the fee is over the top. The president also argues that Vinicius Junior and Marcos Asensio can offer just as much as Mane in the long-term.
