ZINEDINE ZIDANE is determined to drive through a move for Sadio Mane this summer.

Mane only signed his £150,000-a-week contract, designed to keep him with Liverpool until 2023, 18 months ago.

But SunSport understands his representatives have already been approached for informal talks on a possible move.

Mane is not pressing to leave and Liverpool are determined to see off Madrid — just as they did last year when Zidane had his eye on Mo Salah.But should the winger be tempted to a switch to LaLiga, Kop owners FSG want Paris Saint-Germain superstar Mbappe, 21.

The Reds could expect to get £150million for Mane and will have to add another £100m to get PSG to the table.
