Sadio Mane will demand a five-year deal worth £125,000-a-week to sign for Manchester United, according to The Sun. 

The report claims that the Southampton forward, who was dropped from the first-team on Saturday, is ready to sign for the Red Devils in this transfer window.

United, of course, have had their problems in attack, with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Memphis Depay and Co. failing to produce the goods for Louis van Gaal's side.

The addition of Mane, then, would certainly change the dynamic of Van Gaal's front line, but it remains to be seen as to whether Southampton will opt to sell their star forward. 

Mane was dropped for Southampton's clash against Norwich after turning up late for a team meeting, placing his future into further doubt. 

Incredibly, the report from The Sun suggests the entire deal could cost Manchester United as much as £62.5 million. This, of course, is taking into account both the wage bill and potential fee.

Chelsea twist? 

But there could yet be a twist in proceedings. The Sun also claim that Mane is open to signing for Premier League champions Chelsea. 

Guus Hiddink's side, who have endured a nightmare opening half to the season, are in desperate need of reinforcements, but it's uncertain as to whether they will swoop for Mane at this stage.
