Liverpool star ‘not talking about contract extension’ – agent reveals



Sadio Mane is “not talking about a contract extension” with Liverpool at the moment, according to the player’s agent.

Following a successful spell at Southampton, Mane signed for Liverpool in 2016 for around £34m.

The 29-year-old has defied expectations at Liverpool as he has netted 111 goals from his 254 appearances across all competitions.

He has helped the club win the Champions League, Premier League and Carabao Cup in recent years.

Mane and his teammate Mohamed Salah are both out of contract in 2023. Earlier this month, Jurgen Klopp suggested that Liverpool “cannot do much more” to tempt Salah to stay.

Mane’s agent (Bjorn Bezemer) has revealed that his player is not currently discussing a new deal:

“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,” he told TFM Senegal.

Bezemer went onto explain why Mane did not want a public celebration in Liverpool after winning the African Cup of Nations:

“He had a good reception in the dressing room when he got back,” Bezemer added. “But then the timing just wasn’t right with the Leicester game on [the] Thursday.

“The club wanted to do something but the timing wasn’t right with two away games coming. The ceremony would’ve been two weeks after that and Sadio asked them to just focus on the remainder of the season.

“It didn’t have a lot to do with Mo. It was a 100 per cent a Sadio decision, not the club’s.”

Elsewhere, Rafael van der Vaart believes Georginio Wijnaldum “made a mistake” signing for PSG after leaving Liverpool last summer:

Earlier this month, Wijandlum admitted that he has found this season “very difficult”.

Fellow Dutchman Van der Vaart played 77 times for Tottenham between 2010 and 2012. He believes WIjnaldum’s move to PSG was a mistake:

“Wijnaldum made a mistake in choosing PSG,” Van der Vaart said (via TeamTalk).

“Meanwhile, [Steven] Berghuis made an excellent choice choosing to move from Feyenoord to Ajax.

“Now Wijnaldum will understand why making the right choice is so important.”
