Sadio Mane And Mo Salah To Sign New Deals At Liverpool
In news that will prove to be just as exciting for Liverpool fans as signing a new player, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are set to put pen to paper on new contracts at Anfield.
The attacking duo have been prominent for Jurgen Klopp's team, this season, with Salah in particular proving to be the most inspired piece of business Liverpool have done since signing Luis Suarez, scoring 30 goals already since arriving from Roma for £38 million, last summer.
Senegalese winger Mane, a 2016 signing from Southampton, has three years left on his current deal in which he earns £80,000-a-week. The Mirror are reporting that, should the 25-year-old commit his future further to the Reds, he will double his money and become one of the club's top earners.

The former Southampton attacker has scored 25 goals in 57 games since arriving at Anfield and has established himself as one of the most exciting attacking talents in Europe over the last 18 months, striking up a lethal connection with Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Salah, meanwhile, who has only been with the club for just over half a year, is being readied for an improved deal, with Liverpool clearly wary that one of Real Madrid or Barcelona could come sniffing for the free scoring Egyptian forward, who could well be named PFA Player Of The Year for his performances, this season, scoring 30 times in just 36 games.

Salah's current deal expires in 2022.
The duo have ensured that Liverpool haven't missed Philippe Coutinho since the Brazilian left for Barcelona, in January.
