Liverpool ‘to offer Sadio Mane lifetime contract’ to fend off Real Madrid’s transfer advances – The Sun

LIVERPOOL are set to hand star winger Sadio Mane a bumper new contract to fend off interest from Real Madrid once and for all, according to reports.

The Senegalese sensation has been in stunning form once again this season, scoring 18 goals and laying on 12 assists in the Reds' imperious stomp towards the title.

His amazing performances even saw him voted the world's fourth best player at last year's Ballon d'Or ceremony.

The 28-year-old penned a five-year deal at Anfield back in November 2018.

But despite this, talk of interest from the Bernabeu has continued to linger.

And according to Football Insider, Liverpool are ready to offer Mane a lucrative extension that would see him finish his career on Merseyside.

His current contract is due to expire when he is 31, but his irresistible performances have convinced Reds' chiefs that he must be tied down beyond that age.

Madrid's hopes of signing Mane this summer look faint at best, however.

The coronavirus pandemic has thrown the club's finances into uncertainty – with a number of players on monstrous wages to pay for.

With the likes of Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez still on the books, Zinedine Zidane's side will struggle to add further big earners.

This is also believed to have deterred them from their protracted pursuit of Paul Pogba, who earns around £290,000-a-week at Old Trafford.
