Liverpool ace Sadio Mane is seeking to invest in a lower league French club.
Mane is in talks with Bourges Foot, currently owned by Cheikh Sylla, the second Senegalese president of a national French club after Pape Diouf at Marseille between 2005 and 2009.
Sylla is said to have already met Pape Dieng, ‘one of Sadio Mané’s closest collaborators’, and the town’s mayor, Yann Galut, is confident of getting some new investments via a project put forward by the Liverpool star.
He told Le Berry Republican: “The relationship and exchanges that we have with Sadio Mané are serious. The contacts with the town hall are really there. Are they going to happen? Looking at the international context, with the crisis, I don’t know.

“What I can say is that had there not been any Covid, we would have already welcome Sadio Mané in Bourge to talk.”
Mane played formerly in France with Metz.
