Sadio Mane eyeing a summer move
According to a report via Football365, the Senegalese international believes that he needs to win a Champions League title with another club to be regarded as the best African player in history. Therefore he wants to move on in search of a new challenge at the end of this season.
Mohamed Salah has been linked with an exit from Liverpool as well, and it will be interesting to see whether the Reds are prepared to sanction the departure of their key players in the summer.
The report adds that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp would prefer to sell Salah before the Senegalese international because of Mane’s hard-working play style and contribution off the ball.
However, the Reds could be ready to accept a bid of around €40 million for the African Cup of Nations winner because they are aware of his contract situation.
The winger will be a free agent in 18 months, and Liverpool cannot afford to lose him on a free transfer.
Sadio Mane has been an exceptional player for Liverpool since joining the club from Southampton in 2016. He has helped the Reds win the Premier League title and the Champions League title during his time at Anfield.
The winger could still be a key player for the Reds going forward, and it will be interesting to see whether Liverpool can convince him to continue at Anfield beyond this season.
There have been rumours surrounding the future of both Mane and Salah, and it will be interesting to see whether the two players decide to sign a new contract with the Premier League giants.
Diogo Jota sent Luis Diaz message
Meanwhile, the Reds recently signed Luis Diaz from Porto, and the winger is expected to improve the Reds immensely in the final third.
According to a report from the Mirror, Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has spoken with Diaz’s Porto teammate Sergio Oliveira, and he has received assurances that the Colombian international is an outstanding dribbler and he will create numerous chances for the Liverpool forwards.
“I had a chat with Sergio Oliveira, who is now in Rome, and he’s saying, ‘Now you’re going to score even more goals because Luis is an outstanding dribbler, and he will get you those chances’,” Jota told Premier League Productions.
“He’s a great player, and I think he will be good in the Premier League and good for us, obviously.”
