Sadio Mane Confused Absolutely Everybody In New Interview Addressing His Future

Sadio Mane has declared he will do 'what the Senegalese people want' when deciding his Liverpool future.


Mane has emerged as a target for Bayern Munich this summer and his six year spell on Merseyside will likely come to an end.

The 30-year-old has one year remaining on his deal and reportedly demanded to be one of Liverpool's top earners.

He's broken his silence ahead of Senegal's African Cup of Nations qualifier against Benin this weekend and it's produced more questions than answers.

When asked about his future, the winger replied: "Like everyone else, I'm on social media and I see the comments. Isn't it between 60 to 70 per cent of Senegalese that want me to leave Liverpool?

"I will do what they want. We will see soon! Don't be in a hurry because we'll see this together."

Mane joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2016 and has become a key part of Jurgen Klopp's attack.

Since his arrival, Mane has scored 120 goals in 269 appearances and won the Champions League, Premier League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

Bayern are looking to add reinforcements in attack with Robert Lewandowski keen on a move to Barcelona.

Should Mane join the Bundesliga giants, he'll likely be made their main man up front.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was asked about Mane's future last week and he remained coy about his status.

He said: "Wherever Sadio will play next season he will be a big player, definitely. Sadio is in the shape of his life, for sure. (He is in) Brilliant shape, it is a joy to watch him.

"We ask of him a lot this season, football asks of him a lot — lot of finals. I couldn't care less in the moment. We're all fully focused on the game, Sadio is fully focused on the game.

"No concerns, it's completely normal. It's not the first time in my career that before a game rumours about Bayern Munich come up, but no problem at all."

Mohamed Salah's Anfield future is also up in the air, with his contract set to expire next summer.

Gnabry is reportedly keen on a new challenge and won't be signing a new contract.

Bayern value him at around £70 million, but know they'll have to half that valuation to avoid losing him on a free in 2023.

The 26-year-old's wage demands could prove to be an issue too. They're said to be around £250,000-per-week.
