Sadio Mane has given a clear indication at the moment that he plans to leave Liverpool this summer, he appears to be saying goodbye to the club following their UEFA Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid on Saturday night.
Despite dominating the ball for a long time and having plenty of chances at night, Vinicius Jr’s second half saw Los Blancos snatch from Paris to secure their 14th European Cup victory.
Sadio Mane’s future is yet to be confirmed before he starts a match between Bayern Munich, and his contract at Anfield will expire in 2023. The striker has revealed that he will provide an answer for his next departure after the game – first suggesting he may leave Liverpool, and then saying he will stay.
True to his word, the striker has given a clear understanding of his future after a bitter defeat in the UEFA Champions League final.
Speaking to AS, the Senegal international said: “I want to thank the [Liverpool] fans for everything and the coach. I wish the team all the best in the world.”
However, without the player’s current position in public, the Reds will only allow Sadio Mane’s departure if there is a proper gift. His representatives feel that the £ 40m deal will be fine, but Liverpool’s demands may be too high.
while Sadio Mane has so far failed to agree to a contract extension, new talks have been scheduled with his representatives next week as the Liverpool season officially ends.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris Saint-Germain are also among the clubs announced for the tournament.
With some clever business in the transfer window, Liverpool have some evidence of a future in some attacking areas with the arrival of the likes of Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota. Fulham wonderkid Fabio Carvalho will also head to Merseyside this summer.
