Liverpool are in talks with Sadio Mane over a new long-term deal at the club as the Reds look to tie the forward down to Anfield for the peak of his career.

The winger joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2016 for a fee of around £34million and has thrived in a front three alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Mane has three years to run on his deal at Anfield but the club feel he is deserving of improved terms and don’t want to allow one of their key assets to run down his deal.

Liverpool have enjoyed a carefree pre-season, unlike lat summer when intense speculation surrounded Philippe Coutinho’s future.

The club are keen to keep their star men happy and the Telegraph report they are confident of agreeing a new deal with Mane.

Klopp believes the club’s ability to retain their top players speaks volumes for the direction the Reds are moving in.

‘When I have spoken about the mood in the club, it’s not only in the stands – we are Liverpool as a team and the boys want to be part of it,’ said Klopp.

‘That’s really cool and it’s a big achievement for the club because these boys, Bobby Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mané, and a lot of the others as well, could play for pretty much any team in the world.

‘That’s how it is and a good sign for the club. It is an improved situation that these players don’t use us and then go. It’s cool but now we all together have to deliver. Sign your contracts but now, go again.’
