Deal Close: Liverpool £80,000-a-week star et to receive massive pay rise

Liverpool winger Sadio Mane is reportedly in line to receive a pay rise from the club.

The Senegal international, who joined from Southampton in 2015, netted a hat-trick in the Reds’ 5-0 win over Porto on Wednesday, taking his goal tally to 10 for the campaign.

According to The Mirror, Mane, who is currently on £80,000 per week, could have his wage doubled as the club look to keep hold of the 25-year-old.

The newspaper adds that Liverpool are helped by inflation in the football market, and should have no financial issues in completing the move.

Mane joined the Reds from the south coast for £34m in a contract that runs until 2021.
