Liverpool duo Mane and Salah set for new deals

  Liverpool duo Mane and Salah set for new deals Liverpool are planning to reward both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah with new contracts after their fine return this season. The Mirror reports that despite Mane having three years remaining on his current deal, the Reds want to ensure they tie down Mane’s long-term future. Mane currently earns around £80,000-per-week but the new deal will see his wage rise significantly. Salah is also likely to receive a significant pay rise, despite joining in the summer. The former Chelsea winger has already scored 30 goals for the Reds in all competitions. Liverpool are cautious about losing any further attacking players after Philippe Coutinho’s £143 million move to Barcelona in January and want to protect what they have. Mane has enjoyed a fine season at Anfield but has often been overshadowed by either Salah or Roberto Firmino. However, the former Southampton man was particularly impressive in Liverpool’s rampant 5-0 away win at Porto during the week. Mane netted three goals, helping Liverpool to a huge lead ahead of their second leg with the Portuguese side.
