African superstar Sadio Mane has dropped a hint about his Liverpool future amid speculation linking him with a move to LaLiga giants Real Madrid.
Recent reports suggested that the Senegalese forward is a target for Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane as he continues to rebuild his squad following a disappointing 2018/19 campaign.
Mane has been identified as a potential target for Real after his stellar form for club and country last season, which saw him share the Premier League Golden Boot award and guide Senegal to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The 27-year-old appears uninterested in a move, however, and revealed during a recent interview with Complex that Liverpool, with whom he won the Uefa Champions League, has become "his family".
"To be honest, I'm really happy to be a part of the club, the family here," Mane said.
"We have the best fans in the world here, so I'm always so thankful for the support. It's not just great for me too – it gives the whole squad more motivation to perform.
"It keeps us hungry to get better and better together... I really struggle to describe how happy I am to be here!"
Mane's apparent stance will come as a blow to Zidane who also missed out on long-term target Paul Pogba in the most recent transfer window.
The former Southampton forward joined Liverpool in 2016, and has scored 63 goals in 128 appearances for the club since.
