Liverpool face a fresh fight to keep one of their star players — with Sadio Mane attracting interest from Europe. The forward, who missed Saturday’s draw with Burnley at Anfield after starting a three-game ban, is on the radar of Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, together with Italian champions Juventus. It is bad news for Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp, who has endured a stressful summer with Barcelona bidding up to £138million for Philippe Coutinho. The last thing he wants is a similar scenario with Mane, who many Kop fans regard as the club’s most important player — ahead of Coutinho. But some headline-catching performances this season have alerted Barca, who are ready to switch their focus from Coutinho to Mane.
