Liverpool have signed Mohamed Salah to a new contract, and a hat-trick in his last game against Manchester United was just one of his impressive stats. This article will explore Salah’s attacking ability and Mane’s relationship with Klopp. It is also worth considering Klopp’s transfer strategy. Let’s get started. Would you rather have Mo Salah or Sadio Mane?
Salah’s new contract
Mohamed Salah has signed a three-year contract with Liverpool, extending his stay until 2025. The Egyptian forward’s new contract is worth PS350k a week, making him Liverpool’s highest paid player. The Egyptian joined the Reds in 2017, after leaving Inter Milan, and has already helped the club win trophies. Sadio Mane, meanwhile, has left the club for Bayern Munich.
A recent 90min podcast called Talking Transfers features Graeme Bailey, Scott Saunders and Toby Cudworth, discussing a variety of topics. Topics covered in the podcast include Sadio Mane’s new deal, Manchester United’s pursuit of Darwin Nunez, Newcastle’s plans for Moussa Diaby, and the future of Jorginho and Salah.
The Liverpool team must also assess Sadio Mane’s value, as the striker’s current contract expires in 2023. The deal should provide sufficient incentive for both sides to keep the player and make him a first-team regular. The former Roma forward was a key player in the Reds’ run to the Champions League final and the Premier League title. Mane, meanwhile, is a more valuable asset in the current climate and should be offered a similar contract.
While it is tempting to compare Salah’s new contract to that of Mane’s, it’s worth remembering that Salah is approaching thirty and would have cost PS85m to replace. The Egyptian international has been one of the best performers in the Premier League era and would not have cost Liverpool anything less to replace. This contract is an enormous deal for both parties. And the two sides must continue to compete for a Champions League spot.
Mane’s attacking abilities
Sadio Mane’s ability to score in one-v-one situations is legendary. He’s an expert at playing neat one-twos and has scored three goals with his head this season, as well as two in the previous campaign. His defensive skills have also earned him praise from critics, despite his lack of pace. While he’s not the tallest player in the Premier League, his strength and movement enable him to beat defenders and guide the ball into the far corner.
Sadio Mane’s attacking attributes are well known to fans, but his form has been patchy this season. He went three months without a single league goal and only managed to get two assists during that time. In all, he managed to net just four goals and provide two assists in 19 appearances this season. However, Klopp will no doubt hope to find more consistency in the striker, and Mane would add a different dynamic to Liverpool’s attacking line.
Although Mane’s attacking abilities are admired by many, the club’s hierarchy will be able to manage his strikers better than ever before. As a result, the Reds have strengthened their attacking line and bolstered their rankings at the same time. However, the squad is already old, and the attacking line is dominated by a group of almost thirty-year-old players. However, the summer transfer season has brought in some fresh faces, including Nunez and Diego Jota.
Klopp’s transfer strategy
While both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have made it clear that they are staying at Liverpool next season, there is talk of both players leaving in the summer. Mane, a former Real Madrid youngster, is reportedly interested in joining Bayern Munich, but Liverpool have not indicated a willingness to sell. However, if Mane does leave, Klopp will be able to attract a higher bid for him than Salah.
The departure of Mane shows that Liverpool are not willing to break their wage structures for either player. Salah may still be on the radar next summer, but Klopp has his eye on the future. In football, there is no place for sentimentality. It is unlikely that Salah and Mane will be out of the club for very long. The two players are still in good form, but Klopp will need to consider other options if he is to continue his successful reign at Anfield.
The Liverpool striker has been an integral part of the team’s plans since joining in 2014. The club have also been linked with a bid for a Manchester United forward. In addition to signing Mane and Salah, Klopp also has plans for Luis Diaz and Mo Salah. But while it is tempting to buy a player who is a proven success, Liverpool will always keep an eye on the future.
Riyad Mahrez’s availability
Manchester City have been keeping an eye on Riyad Mahrez’s availability this summer. The Algerian has only one year left on his contract and has been in superb form for the Blues this season. Zidane has been a big fan of Mahrez’s form and has expressed his desire to sign him for Real Madrid. Mahrez has played 22 Premier League games and scored seven goals. He has been a major part of Pep Guardiola’s squad and has become one of the team’s main attacking threats.
After being knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations by the Ivory Coast in matchday three, the Algerian winger has already returned to Manchester and is aiming to be fit for City’s Premier League clash against Chelsea. Mahrez’s availability is vital for the team, as a full-time striker will help them win the Champions League this season. The striker has already begun his journey back to England, where he will be ready to make an impact.
At an early age, Mahrez struggled to find a club. Recruiters thought he was too small and unathletic to be a striker. Despite his lack of size and ability, his football technique attracted attention from scouts. He signed a professional contract with AAS Sarcelles in 2004. In 2009, he moved to Quimper, where he teamed up with Mathias Pogba. In 2010, he moved to Le Havre, where he competed in the second French league.
Jurgen Klopp’s decision to sign Darwin Nunez
It’s been a while since Liverpool made an announcement about the signing of Darwin Nunez. The Uruguay international had already impressed Klopp during his time at Benfica, playing against Liverpool in the Champions League. The 23-year-old now follows in the footsteps of the Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez by joining the Reds. While his signing was still subject to international clearance and a work permit, it’s clear that Jurgen Klopp is confident in Nunez’s abilities.
A prolific striker, Nunez has a great attacking track record. Like Salah, Mane, and Firmino, Nunez has the ability to play many different positions. His versatility will be vital as Liverpool look to replace Sadio Mane. In a forward midfield, the club are looking to bolster the attacking side with a new striker. While it’s unlikely to replace Mane, it’s unlikely to be difficult to find a suitable replacement for the injured Mane.
Although Sadio Mane and Takumi Minamino have been linked with a move to Aston Villa and Leeds United, Jurgen Klopp has chosen Darwin Nunez over other midfielders. Nunez is expected to make his Liverpool debut against Manchester United in Bangkok on July 12, 2022. And if he does make an impact, then he could even break the club’s transfer record.
