Liverpool forward Sadio Mane says he would not rule out staying at the Reds for the rest of his career. The 27-year-old has been with the Merseysiders for over three years after joining from Southampton for £34m in July 2016.
When asked about his future, the Senegalese international said that the family atmosphere of the club made him feel at home, and he can’t see himself leaving Anfield:
“I am very happy to be part of this great club and I enjoy it. Hopefully I stay here forever. I’ve been to some clubs around the world, but Liverpool is unique. It’s like a family. The mood is always incredible. But it’s normal that we’ve been together for four years and know each other. We are also together off the field and that is important for morale.”
Mane has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain over the past couple of years, but there has certainly never been an indication from the player that he wants to move on.
The forward signed a new five-year deal back in November 2018, and he is currently contracted to the club until 2023 when he will be 31. He is certainly playing like he is enjoying himself, having scored nine goals and contributed two assists in 13 appearances for Liverpool so far this season.
