They have already managed to win the Carabao Cup, and are in the final of the FA Cup. Moreover, Liverpool have made it to the final of the Champions League and will face Real Madrid to win the greatest prize in club football.

Things have been quite similar in the league as Liverpool is locked in a fierce title race with Manchester City, who have a lead of three points over them with just three games to go. Liverpool’s attackers Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have played a huge role in their success, but the club might lose them both next season.

Sadio Mane linked with a move to FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich

Mane’s contract ends in 2023, and with just one year left on his contract, Liverpool are in danger of losing him for relatively cheap. Recently, Mane has been linked with a move to European giants FC Barcelona.

It would be very hard for Barca to make a move for Mane because of their financial troubles. However, according to a report by ESPN FC. Barcelona could focus on Mane as he would be much cheaper to sign than Erling Haaland, who completed his move to Manchester City.

The report went on to say that Mane had an interest in winning the Ballon d’Or with FC Barcelona and a move really appeals to him.
