Jurgen Klopp wanted to sign Vinicius Junior when Real Madrid asked to sign Sadio Mane from Liverpool
Mane is reportedly on Madrids radar ahead of the summer transfer window as Zinedine Zidane looks to bolster his attacking options.
But according to El Chiringuito, Madrid also made an approach for the Senegal international last summer.
The report claims that Madrid went to Liverpool to discuss an asking price for Mane.
But Liverpool responded by demanding that Madrid pay €200 million (£173m) and include Vinicius in the deal.
Madrid signed Vinicius in a £38.7 million deal from Flamengo last summer and the 18-year-old has impressed this season with three goals and 12 assist before he suffered an ankle ligament injury in March.
