Sadio Mane has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich as he enters the final year of his contract at Liverpool with the winger reportedly a primary target for the Germans in the summer
The Reds winger has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich as he enters the final year of his contract at Anfield next season. The German side have reportedly made the 30-year-old a primary target in the summer.
Liverpool have had no contact from Bayern, however, and are relaxed about the situation as they plan to open talks with Mane over an extension in the summer. And the player is equally at ease about his future as he says his sole focus is on the Anfield club and the remainder of the season.
Asked if he has ever been happier at Liverpool in his current vein of form, he joked: “Yes, when we won the trophies I was happier!”
Mane added: “I’m just trying to enjoy every moment. It’s all about the team. The boys make it easier for me.”
Mane showed his worth at Villa Park as he scored the winning goal against Steven Gerrard’s men in the comeback 2-1 victory. Luis Diaz found the forward in the box who put a glancing header past Emi Martinez into the bottom corner in what is a crucial three points for Liverpool in the Premier League title race.
Asked about the goal, he said: “It was a good cross from Diaz. Even without power, I usually score so that is what I try to do! Luis Diaz is a great player.”

Jamie Carragher reckons Mane’s influence is equal to Mohamed Salah’s and Liverpool should do whatever it takes to keep the Senegal international. The pundit joked he wouldn’t let Mane go to Bayern cause he would “have him to deal with.”
Asked if Mane is as important as Salah, he said: “Yes. I’ve always said that. For me, as a Liverpool fan when I watch Liverpool play, Sadio Mane is my favourite player. He’s the one I watch. We know Salah’s numbers, he’s won the Golden Boot, so you can’t say he doesn’t do his job. But as you say about Mane, he’s sacrificed himself at times, the shift he puts in.
“Not just him but Salah as well… five years they’ve been at it now. Never injured touch wood for Liverpool, they’re there week in, week out, 90 minutes, getting their numbers up every week, what they’ve done for this club is unbelievable. Huge fan of Sadio Mane, and I can assure you he’s going nowhere. I won’t let him go to Bayern Munich because he’d have me to deal with!”
