Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has agreed to terms on a new long-term deal at Anfield.
The 26-year-old joined the club from Southampton on a five-year contract in June 2016 for a fee of £34m.
Since then the Senegal international has gone on to make 89 appearances in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring 40 goals.
“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,” he said.
“I am looking forward to everything – to helping the team, to helping the club achieve our dreams and, especially, to win trophies,” he added.
“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.”
Talks over the new deal, which is believed to run until 2023, were opened at the end of last season but have only been finalised now and the former Southhampton forward is expected to earn a little over £150,000 per week with the new deal.
