The prices of top-level footballers seem to increase year on year, and we are now seeing a trend where elite players are being sold for more than £100m.
World-record fees are broken regularly, and Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk became the most expensive centre-back in history when he moved to Anfield from Southampton for £75m in January.
Another Liverpool player has been making headlines of late, and it relates to his contract situation.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Merseyside club are keen to reward Sadio Mane with a new contract, but the attacker is yet to put pen-to-paper.
At the moment there are no serious concerns that the Senegal international wants to move on given that he still has two years left on his current deal.
However, if Mane were to push for a move, how much could the Reds realistically demand?
The talented star signed from Southampton in 2016 for a fee in the region of £34m, but his price tag is likely to have risen given – he is probably worth more than double now – how crucial he is to Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Mane, who has scored 29 Premier League goals since being a Liverpool player, is one third of a scintillating attack alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
With that in mind, how much do you think Mane is worth in this market?
