Liverpool are planning on offering Sadio Mane a new contract at Anfield after his starring role against Manchester City, according to a fresh rumour.

The Lowdown: Mane stars at Wembley

The Senegalese was arguably the Reds’ star player on Saturday, as they beat City 3-2 at Wembley to book a place in the FA Cup final.

Mane scored twice in the first half to help Liverpool race into a 3-0 lead, closing down Steffen for the first goal and volleying home the second just before the break.

It was arguably one of the 30-year-old’s best displays this season, with Klopp continuing to use him in a central attacking role.

David-James-Liverpoolexpires at the end of next season, and according to Football Insider, the club are willing to offer him a new contract.

It is stated that FSG aren’t willing to ‘break the bank’ with their offer but the hope is that he agrees to extend his stay at Anfield beyond 2023. The source in question claims that the forward wants to stay put with the Reds.

The Verdict: No-brainer for Liverpool

While Mane may no longer be at the absolute peak of his powers, he is still one of the most formidable attacking in the Premier League and should remain that way for a few years to come.

He already has 18 goals to his name in 2021/22 – his 13 Premier League goals have already surpassed last season’s tally of 11 – and he has been hailed as ‘world-class’ by Klopp in the past.

It may be that Mane slowly becomes more of a squad player over time as he ages but keeping him instead of allowing his contract to tick down is an absolute no-brainer, given his ability.
