Sadio Mane downplayed rumours of a possible move away from Liverpool amid Real Madrid interest, saying he is happy at the club.

The Senegal worldwide scored in last month's Champions League defeat to the Spanish club and speculation nearly immediately suggested he was a target for them - before Zinedine Zidane's shock resignation.

When asked about his future, Mane said: "I am very happy in Liverpool and my contract will last for three more years".

Mane has been an instrumental figure on Merseyside since his arrival from Southampton in 2016, helping fire the club to the Champions League final and a fourth place Premier League finish alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino last season.

The former Metz and Red Bull Salzburg winger admits he found it hard to put the defeat behind him but he has now turned his focus to the World Cup in Russian Federation with Senegal.

"To be honest, this defeat (against Real Madrid in Kiev) was not easy to put away". While much is expected of him, the Liverpool forward says he is not feeling the pressure.

Mane will be one of his country's key players as they take on Colombia, Japan and Poland in Russian Federation in the World Cup in the coming weeks. The defeat is ticked off.

The winger finally addressed the speculation by expressing that he is "very happy" at Liverpool (via Liverpool Echo).

England could come up against Senegal in the second round of the World Cup, which could see Mané potentially line up directly against teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.
