Manchester United are willing to pay more than £20m to sign Southampton ace Sadio Mane, according to reports.
Mane has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer with Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal keen to bolster his attack before the end of the transfer window.
According to The Telegraph, Manchester United are plotting a bid in excess of £20m to bring the Senegalese international to the club.
United have also been linked with moves for Gareth Bale and Alexandre Pato, however, it seems the Red Devils are keen for Mane to follow Luke Shaw and Morgan Schneiderlin as players to make the move from St Mary’s to Old Trafford in recent times.
Javier Hernandez reportedly looks likely to join Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen, and Van Gaal has to move quickly to increase his options in the front third.
Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is understood to be desperate to keep hold of Mane, but a bid well over £20m could turn the heads of Saints officials.
