Sadio Mane has responded to rumours linking him with a summer move to Real Madrid by insisting he is focused on Liverpool.

The 26-year-old Senegal international has been enjoying a break after his country's World Cup 2018 campaign was ended at the group stage.

I remain a Liverpool player and I will join my team-mates in the United States for the pre-season tour.

However, it has not stopped speculation linking him with a possible transfer with Real Madrid thought to be lining him up as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who is being linked with a surprise exit.

But Mane, who has scored 33 goals in 73 appearances for the Reds since joining from Southampton in a £34million deal in summer 2016, insists that he is not thinking about joining Los Blancos.

Mane, who scored Liverpool's goal in May's 3-1 Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid, said: "These are just rumours. I am not aware of anything and haven't been contacted.

"I remain a Liverpool player and I will join my team-mates in the United States for the pre-season tour.

"Real are a great team, but I am focused on my team, Liverpool."

Liverpool are 5.00 to win the Premier League next season, while they are priced at 1.04 to finish in the top four.
