Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood wants 21-year-old Senegal sensation Sadio Mane to be one of his first big-money buys. Sherwood has twice sent new chief scout Ian Broomfield to watch Red Bull Salzburg’s £10million-rated left-winger in action. A star of the Austrian club’s successful season, Mane (left) fits the bill at Spurs where Sherwood wants a left-sided attacker with pace. Salzburg will sell at the right price and are heading for an auction as Chelsea, Manchester City and Newcastle are all tracking him too. However, Sherwood – hoping for the nod to buy from supremo Daniel Levy – heads the hunt. Mane’s advisors know he would have a better chance of starting regularly at White Hart Lane than City and Chelsea where he would be in a queue for a game.
