Athletic journalist Jack Peterbrook has said Tottenham could have come close to signing Sadio Mane before he joined Liverpool.

£34 million (guardian) Man is regarded as one of the greatest wingers in Premier League history, scoring 111 times in the league, while also being a mainstay of one of the most elite teams in the country for many years.

From the day he signed for the Reds, Mane seemed like the perfect fit, with Jamie Carragher calling him his “favorite player”.

Mane could have taken his son’s place

While Son Heung-min has been a standout for Tottenham over the years, former Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has every reason to be a more complete player.

Thankfully, Son Heung-min has not been transferred and his position on the left wing has never been threatened.
