The FC Barcelona It continues to scan the market in search of quality options but at the same time not crazy at an economic level to strengthen itself. The priority for the striker is yes or yes the signing of a ‘top’ player, that is, an attacker who can make a difference. And now the option of Sadio Mané (30 years old), striker Liverpoolas you have learned Sports world.
The Barça dream was Erling Haaland (21 years old), whose signing for the Manchester City It could become official this week. The Barça club has not hidden for a long time now that they have signed the Norwegian from Borussia Dortmundwith whom he came to meet Xavi Hernandez in Munich at the beginning of March, it was almost impossible due to the high economic demands of his environment. This detail, nothing minor, which has not changed despite the recent death of his agent, Mino Raiola. The Barcelona club has also moved by Mohamed Salah (29 years old), attacker of the Liverpool that loves Xavi Hernandez, but the claims of the Egyptian at the chip level are very high. And there have also been several efforts by Robert Lewandowski (33 years old), a Polish striker for Bayern whose contract expires next year and is about to leave Munich to land at the Camp Nou. However, the German club has been inflexible for now: they want to renew him and do not want to lose him this summer. And much less without having found a substitute.
In this context of difficulties in finding a mediatic and resolute striker, in the environment of the Barça a name has appeared that was ‘covered’ until now: that of Sadio Mané. At 30 years old, the Liverpool striker is a year away from his contract in Anfield expires and his illusion if he can leave the English club is to go to LaLiga, with a special predilection for FC Barcelona. Sources from the culé entity confirm to this newspaper that the crack, champion of the Africa Cup in February before the Egypt from your partner Salahwhich is on the list of possible reinforcements as a real option.

Yes the last one won African Ballon d’Or ahead of your partner Salah.
Nevertheless, mane think you play in a big LaLiga As the Barça it would give more power to their individual and collective achievements. At 30 years old, and still in top form (he comes from scoring two goals in the semifinals of the Champions before him Villarreal), the Senegalese is willing to make the leap to the Camp Nou.
