Although The Express can be a bit keen at times this story is easy to believe.
Manchester United are looking for top class attacking additions in the winter window and we all know how difficult they will be to acquire mid-season.
But perhaps the most gettable one is Sadio Mane of Southampton.
His club don’t want to let him leave but their absence from The Champions League means that the player would be eligible to compete for Manchester United in the competition in the knockout phases.
The Express reports:
Manchester United make Southampton star their top transfer target and line up January bid
With 6 goals in 13 games this season Manse had arguably improved on his brilliant last campaign and he looks more than capable of competing at the very top level in Europe.
And it’s his versatility as much as his talent that catches the eye.
Mane is a team player who can perform equally well through the middle or on the flank.
His work ethic combined with his skill make him a wonderful prospect at the age of just 23.
We think that Manchester United would be a much better team with him in it.
Let’s see him in action.
