Liverpool forwards Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane provide updates on their future amid contract talks
Mohamed Salah has confirmed that he will be at Liverpool next season irrespective of his contract situation, while Sadio Mane has cast doubt on his future in comments made by the pair before the Champions League final.
The pair are currently part of a Liverpool squad looking to bounce back from Premier League heartbreak before their trip to Paris as they look to crown their cup treble this season with a Champions League win against Real Madrid.
Beyond that, however, the club have less clarity. All of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are out of contract in 2023 and have shown no signs of extending their current deals at Anfield this season.
Salah, however, who finished top goalscorer and creator in the Premier League, has confirmed that he will not be leaving this summer, though he did nothing to dampen the suggestion that he may leave the club on a free in 2023.
‘I am staying at Liverpool next season for sure, that’s clear. In my mind, I don’t focus on contract right now’, he revealed.
‘I don’t want to be selfish, it’s not the right moment to speak about the contract’,

Mane’s mind on Madrid
And, forward partner Sadio Mane, who has hit a rich vein of form as a no.9 for Liverpool in the latter stages of this season, was even more non-commital, simply telling reporters that he will discuss the situation with the club following Saturday’s final.
‘There will be new discussions at the end of the season. I’ll answer after Champions League final’, he claimed.
🗣 “I’m going to answer after the Champions League.”

Mane has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich this summer in recent weeks, though whether such a move will materialise is another matter entirely.
