“We talk a lot with Liverpool”- 29-year-old superstar’s agent provides worrying update about contract situation
Liverpool forward Sadio Mane’s agent Bjorn Bezemer has provided an insight into the Senegalese forward’s contract talks with the Premier League giants. Bezemer revealed that his client and the Reds “are not talking about a contract extension” at the moment.
“We talk a lot with Liverpool but currently we are not talking about a contract extension, we are waiting for the end of the season,” said Bjorn Bezemer as per TFM Senegal.
Sadio Mane joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2016 in a deal worth £34 million. He has developed into one of the best forwards in the Premier League during his time with the Reds.
The 29-year-old has scored 111 goals and provided 45 assists in 254 appearances for the club. Mane has helped Liverpool win a Champions League title, a Premier League title, and an EFL Cup.
Mane’s future at Anfield has come into question since the arrival of Columbian forward Luis Diaz from Porto in January.
The South American is seen as the ideal replacement for the Senegal international, whose contract is set to expire in 2023. Bezemer, however, has remained coy about Mane’s future with the Merseyside club.
Luis Diaz has enjoyed an impressive start to life at Anfield. He has scored two goals in six Premier League appearances for the 2019-20 Premier League champions. His directness, dribbling, and work-rate have added another dimension to the club’s attack.
Jurgen Klopp’s side could therefore opt to cash in on Sadio Mane this summer as the former Southampton star is set to turn 30 this year and will have just one year remaining on his contract.
