Sadio Mane has revealed that he came “really, really close” to joining Manchester United in 2016, even meeting Louis van Gaal, before deciding to join their fierce rivals, Liverpool.

The Senegal forward has since established himself as a key component in Jurgen Klopp’s side after his £34 million transfer three years ago.

Having caught the eye with his lightning speed and eye for goal at St Mary’s, there were plenty of suitors and United saw their transfer target snapped up from under their nose by Liverpool.

“For me I think it was the right time as well. I said, “I am going to Liverpool,” Mane told the UK Mirror.
