Since arriving at Anfield from Southampton (from $44 million) in the summer of 2016, Mane has proven to be one of the most dangerous, explosive attackers in the Premier League.

The Senegalese attacker’s 40 goals in 89 appearances (all competitions) would rank him among the most productive strikers over the last two-plus seasons, let alone someone who’s exclusively deployed as a winger.


“I am very happy to extend my time at Liverpool. It is a great day for me and I have made the best decision in my career.

“I am looking forward to everything — to helping the team, to helping the club achieve our dreams and, especially, to win trophies.

“I’ve always said, when I knew I had a chance to come here I didn’t have to think twice. The right club in the right moment and with the right coach as well. I came here and was very happy.”
