Ronald Koeman admits Southampton will struggle to hold on to Manchester United target Sadio Mane.
The Senegalese striker was linked to Louis van Gaal’s side in the summer but the Saints stood firm and managed to keep hold.
However, the 23-year-old has been in fine form for Koeman’s side again this season and the boss admits the south coast club are preparing for life without the forward.
As quoted on the Metro, Koeman said: ‘Maybe one day we will lose Mane but then we have to be prepared.
‘You know in our situation that kind of player, if they play like today (against Chelsea), there will come a lot of interest in the end of the season, but now we enjoy watching Mane in our team.’
