Sadio Mane A Target For Newcastle United

8 years ago

The media in Austria are reporting that Newcastle and Tottenham are the two clubs leading the chase for midfielder Sadio Mane.

Mane is an international midfielder for Senegal and has played alongside Papiss Cisse for his national team over the last two years despite still being only 21 now.

However, it is at club level that Sadio Mane has really excelled.

The Austrian league is certainly not the strongest but 39 goals from midfield in only 70 matches since his 4m Euros move from Metz 18 months ago is impressive stuff.

Salzburg are backed by the financial muscle of Red Bull and have already won their league despite still having eight matches to go, being a staggering 27 points clear of the nearest challenger.

However, they have also performed well in Europe, narrowly going out of the Europa League to Basle.

It would appear that Sadio Mane has quickly outgrown the confines of the Austrian league and while a £10m price tag isn’t cheap, if he can convert anything like that goalscoring record to a higher level then he would be a real asset for anyone.
