The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to a story from Don Balon, linking 26-year-old livewire, Sadio Mane, with a switch to Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano this summer. The Senegalese forward is one-third of The Reds potent front three that has put almost every side they’ve faced to the sword.
Not sure where they’ve plucked the latest rumour from https://t.co/ao6zdVWxJo

Mane has scored an incredible 17 goals in his 39 games this season, despite the club also having Mo Salah scoring at a rate of nearly a goal a game. The 26-year-old former Southampton man has been particularly prolific in Europe, having scored seven times in eight games for the Anfield faithful in the Champions League. The fans will be praying that Mane can add to his total in the club’s next two games in the tournament against Roma over the next week in the semi-finals.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have impressed on all fronts this year and it would be easy for a normal forward player to get lost behind the brilliance of Mo Salah this season, who scored his 31st Premier League goal of the season against West Brom on Saturday. Mane has made his own spotlight this year though, his goals and assists have been crucial to the club both domestically and in Europe. As long as the club can keep up their magnificent goalscoring form, they won’t want to see the back of Mane.

just to unsettle a player maybe, it is what the press doing lately. especially everytime LFC got an amazing player, they will do it each and every window until he leaves.
