In this summer’s transfer window, Mane chose to leave Liverpool after rumors of a request for a salary increase that the club did not fulfill. However, his agent, Bicary Cisse, denied the rumors that had been circulating. Mane left Liverpool because he wanted a new challenge, not because of a salary issue.
