Sadio Mane has dropped a big hint that he’s ready to commit his future to Liverpool as he continues to be linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid this summer.
The Senegalese winger has been one of Liverpool’s stand-out performers this campaign having notched 18 goals in the Premier League and 21 in all competitions.
His exceptional form has made him a target for the Beranbeu outfit but Florentino Perez would have to fork out over £130million if Mane were to leave the Merseyside club at the end of the season.

However, having recently reached 100 games for Liverpool, Mane insisted that he wants to become idolised by Reds fans for years to come.
Mane told the official LFC magazine: ‘Of course I want to be a legend not only for Liverpool but also in the Premier League story and that is one of my targets. I will do everything possible to achieve everything possible.
‘Reaching 100 games means a lot to me. To play this many games for a club like Liverpool is incredible.
‘Like I have always said, I am very happy to play for this club and every single day I am enjoying being here and trying to do everything to win something for this club.’

The 27-year-old also reiterated his desire to work with manager Jurgen Klopp for many ‘more years’ before going on to heap huge praise on the German boss.
Mane said: ‘To be honest he is a great man, you can see it and he is a lovely person.
‘He loves all his players and is very close to his players too. He also demands a lot but he never puts pressure on us other than asking the best of us.
‘He only asks you to do your best in whatever you are doing and also to enjoy it.
‘I think that’s important because, under him, everybody has progressed a lot as everyone can see. It’s very important for us to work with him for more years.’
