Sadio Mane has decided to call time on his Liverpool Career as per reports by Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. The Senegalese forward is quoted to have informed his teammates of this decision following Saturday’s UEFA Champions League Final loss to Real Madrid.
Sadio Mane has enjoyed a glorious Anfield Career where he has won the English Premier League, FA Cup, Carling Cup, UEFA Champions League , UEFA super cup and the Club World Cup. A period which has seen him form one of the most terrific attacking partnerships with Egypt’s Mohamed Salah.
At 30 , one would expect the Senegalese to remain at Liverpool under the tutelage of Jurgen Klopp. There he enjoys the stability of a “Star” status and the trust and love of Liverpool fans across the globe. But Mane is quoted to have a different opinion on where he intends to be next season.
Sadio Mane will definitely attract interest from top European clubs . Bayern Munich are touted as favourites to land his signature .
A ‘ DICEY ‘ DESICION..
With 12 months to the expiration of his contract with Liverpool , the club could well decide to hold onto him and risk losing him on a free next season.
PSG took the same path last summer and it paid off with Kylian Mbappe making a U-turn to agree a new deal with the club this month. This decision will likely rest on Klopp’s readiness to stick to a player who will feel betrayed If the club decides to block his wish .
Whether a move will benefit his career at this time is a question that would trend in the coming weeks with his age (30), the possible change of environment (If he decides to leave England) and his Successful partnership with Salah the major considerations .
A ‘Dicey’ decision indeed for the African star whose chances of winning the Baloon D’ Or suffered a huge setback with the UEFA Champions League Final loss to Real Madrid.
Multiple reports state a public announcement of his decision to end his stay at Liverpool is imminent . Whatever happens, Liverpool will certainly not give away their 120 goal star on a cheap despite having a single year to his current contract.
Do you think Sadio Mane’s imminent Liverpool exit will benefit his career ?
