Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has claimed that none of the club’s famous front three will be sold, even if they grow unsettled at Anfield.
The attacking trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have been a major part of Liverpool’s success in recent years under Jurgen Klopp, scoring 38 Premier League goals between them this season.
Salah and Mane are both attracting interest from elsewhere, with Real Madrid weighing up a bid for either of the star wingers – even if it may take some convincing to prise them away from Anfield.
And former Reds star Dalglish believes that it will be extremely difficult for anyone to sign any member of Liverpool’s front three.
He told the Hat-Trick Podcast: “For them [other clubs] to think they can get Mane – unless, and it doesn’t look like it, unless they’re [Salah, Mane, Firmino] unhappy being at Liverpool which none of them seem to be.
“Eventually, like everything else, they’ll change the team around a little bit, but I cannot see them selling those players. Until, and unless, Liverpool want them out rather than they want out.”
Dalglish is not the first former Liverpool player to quash rumours that the likes of Mane can be taken away easily, with Phil Thompson stating in April that the forward was always going to be in the gossip columns due to his form, but that he is happy at Anfield.
