Manchester United transfers: ‘I had it all agreed’ – Sadio Mane reveals he almost moved to Old Trafford


Manchester United almost signed Liverpool forward Sadio Mane in 2016, according to the man himself. 

Mane has been a revelation since moving to Anfield six years ago, scoring 120 goals in 268 appearances in all competitions. The Senegal international has won the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup and the League Cup on Merseyside. Liverpool (opens in new tab) paid just £34m to sign Mane from Southampton (opens in new tab) in 2016, but the forward has admitted he came close to signing for United (opens in new tab) instead.

“I have to say, I was really close to going to Manchester United,” he told the Daily Telegraph (opens in new tab)

“I had the contract there. I had it all agreed. It was all ready, but instead I thought, ‘No, I want to go to Liverpool’. I was convinced to go with [Jurgen] Klopp’s project. I still remember the first time I got the call from Klopp.
