Jurgen Klopp has remarked on the rumours associating Sadio Mane with a summer transfer to Bayern Munich believing he “couldn’t care less.” Mane, 30, has only one year left on his Liverpool agreement, sparking rumours that he will exit this summertime.

The attacker has established his position as being one of the top strikers in the world, playing all over the main three after the addition of Luis Diaz in January. However, the fact that his agreement will expire next year has spurred speculations that he will leave this summer.

Klopp remained tight-lipped about Mane’s future, wanting to concentrate on Saturday’s Champions League finale versus Real Madrid. Klopp remarked on Friday:  “It’s not the first time in my career that before a game rumours about Bayern Munich come up, but no problem at all.” Per Fabrizio Romano. 

In this campaign, Mane has 23 goals in 50 outings for The Reds. He’ll be striving to add to his FA Cup, League Cup, and Africa Cup of Nations victories this year by conquering the Champions League.

Real Madrid will encounter Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side in the UEFA Champions League final this weekend at the Stade de France. Also on the domestic side, Real Madrid performed spectacular, winning the La Liga crown by a massive 13 points. Los Blancos have been halted to two successive ties in the Liga and have a lot of homework to do heading into this match.

Liverpool, on the contrary side, came within a whisker of winning the Premier League this year and will be aiming to make up for it this weekend. The other week, the Anfield club beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 and will be optimistic going into this clash.

In the heritage of the UEFA Champions League and the European Cup, Liverpool and Real Madrid will encounter for the 3rd occasion – the highest by a pair of clubs. Liverpool is seeking to capture their 7th UEFA Champions League trophy, which would put them tied with AC Milan and therefore only below Real Madrid.

Real Madrid has won the UEFA Champions League title in each of their past seven outings in the finale, with their only setback being in 1981 versus Liverpool. In the UEFA Champions League, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has met Real Madrid nine times, winning only three of those encounters.
