Sadio Mane has been linked with a move away from Liverpool, with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain both expressing interest. It all starts here.
Transfer season arrives. Mohamed Salah was the first, and now Sadio Mane is the second. Links with clubs around Europe will continue to dominate the news until their contract problems are settled.
Both of their contracts expire in 2023, and they have yet to sign new contracts to extend their time on Merseyside. They aren’t the only two players whose futures are uncertain, with Roberto Firmino also out of contract next summer, but their contributions this season make them the most significant.
Salah’s contract drama has dominated the campaign for virtually the whole duration. From magazine interviews to his agent’s enigmatic comments,
Mane, on the other hand, has remained relatively quiet about his predicament until recently. Of course, the primary attention remains on the final two games of the season, but the Senegalese international‘s summer is building up to be pivotal.
The 30-year-old has been linked with both Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks as his future remains unknown. The Bundesliga champions have Mane ‘firmly in sight,’ according to German source Kicker. PSG are the favorites to sign him if he does not renew his Liverpool contract, according to BILD journalist Christian Falk.
Mane will have plenty of options if he chooses to continue his career elsewhere. PSG may be an appealing option because of the wage package they can offer and the position I could play if Kylian Mbappe leaves. Bayern Munich has recently enjoyed success in Europe and currently leads its domestic league.
Mane (22 goals) and Salah (30 goals) will both be crucial roles in Liverpool’s roster heading into next season. For the second half of the season, the former has been in outstanding form, filling a new role in the team to assist Luis Diaz.
Lionel Messi left Barcelona at the end of last season to pursue a fresh challenge in Ligue 1, but the response he received from fans in France is a far cry from what he experienced in La Liga. Instead, fans booed him after the club was eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid.
When it comes to signing a new deal, there are a lot of factors to consider, which is why Salah’s negotiations have taken so long. But, for the sake of a little extra cash, it’s worth considering whether it’s worth leaving a squad that allows you to thrive on a regular basis and routinely competes for championships at the highest level of the game.
