Liverpool reportedly want the Real Madrid ace if they are even going to contemplate selling one of their key men.

According to a report from Spanish media outlet BOLAVIP, Liverpool made an enquiry for Vinicius Junior when Real Madrid approached them about the possibility of signing Sadio Mane.

Los Blancos have been tracking the Reds ace all season it seems, with Spanish media outlet El Confidencial claiming that the Senegalese forward is a key target for the La Liga giants.

 

The 18-year-old joined Madrid in the summer, and he has been a real hit at the Santiago Bernabeu thus far, racking up seven goals and 13 assists in 33 appearances in all competitions for Zinedine Zidane's side.

And although he has established himself as an important player for Madrid, they might just be tempted to let him move to Liverpool, if it means that they get Mane in return.

Spanish media outlet BOLAVIP claims that the Reds enquired about the possibility of signing the Brazilian, although Madrid have no interest in letting him go.

Liverpool don't want to lose Mane either, so it seems as thought he two clubs have reached somewhat of an impasse.
