‘The club has no ambition’: Manchester United fans react to interest in Southampton star Sadio Mane

Manchester United‘s reported pursuit of Southampton forward Sadio Mane has garnered a typically hot reaction from those on social media and it’s safe to say a large number of Red Devils supporters aren’t best pleased with the speculation.

Telegraph Sport broke the news on Wednesday afternoon that United had inquired about the 23-year-old after seeing a deal for Barcelona winger Pedro hijacked by Premier League rivals Chelsea [via Marca], despite reports of chief executive Ed Woodward flying out to Spain to seal the £22million transfer earlier in the week [via Mail Sport].

Mane did enjoy a good first season in English football following his arrival from Red Bull Salzburg last summer as he scored 10 goals for the Saints and also broke the record for the quickest hat-trick in Premier League history as he netted three times in two minutes and 56 seconds against Aston Villa back in May.
