James Maddison ‘liked’ a photo of Mane shared by SportBible on Instagram with the caption: “Sadio Mane shaking hands with players better than him this season…”
A report shared by the Daily Star in June exclusively claimed that Liverpool had made an approach to Leicester City over the availability of playmaker Maddison and would battle it out with the Manchester clubs and Spurs to sign him.
The summer ended with the England international remaining at Leicester but the 22-year-old would be a superb addition to the Liverpool squad even though Jurgen Klopp is blessed with several top midfielders.
Some hawk-eyed Liverpool fans noticed that the creative midfielder liked a post shared by SportBible which described Sadio Mane as the best player in the Premier League.
The Senegal attacker assisted Andy Robertson’s equaliser at Villa Park on Saturday and also scored the winner, flicking a Trent Alexander-Arnold header home to win the game in the 94th minute.
His form this season has been vitally important to Liverpool remaining unbeaten and staying six points clear of Manchester City in the Premier League title race.
The Sky Blues beat the Reds to the title last season with the finest of margins deciding one of the most exciting seasons in decades and Mane seems desperate to ensure his side wins the title this year.
