Mane 'very happy' at Liverpool amid Real Madrid links

Sadio Mane has dampened speculation over a summer move to Real Madrid, pledging his long-term future to Liverpool ahead of the World Cup.

The Senegal global scored in last month's Champions League defeat to the Spanish club and speculation nearly immediately suggested he was a target for them - before Zinedine Zidane's shock resignation.

Mane has been an instrumental figure on Merseyside since his arrival from Southampton in 2016, helping fire the club to the Champions League final and a fourth place Premier League finish alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino last season.

But the Senegal worldwide, in Russian Federation readying for his team's June 19 opener against Poland, said his immediate future lies at Anfield.

However, Mane did add the caveat that he wants to start winning trophies in the near future, something Liverpool haven't been able to do under Jurgen Klopp. "The whole club worked hard for this Champions League title, but Real Madrid were the better team that day", he said.

However, the tricky winger insists he is happy to remain on Merseyside ahead of the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. The defeat is but ticked off.

Senegal stand a strong chance of progressing to the round of 16, which would be an impressive feat considering this is their first time in the World Cup since 2002 and only their second in history. "That's my whole focus".

"I feel no pressure".

"As I said, I am happy in Liverpool".
