There is no need for Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to leave Liverpool and join Real Madrid because Anfield is ‘the place to be’. That is the view of Nicolas Anelka, who played for both clubs in his 19-year career.

On Wednesday night, Mane and Salah will lift the Premier League title after playing integral roles in Liverpool’s success this season.

Once again, the pair lead the goalscoring charts for the Reds with Salah scoring 23 goals and Mane bagging 19 in all competitions.

Their formidable form and quality has unsurprisingly led to admiring glances from rival clubs.

Madrid have been linked with both men in the past but the duo are tied to contracts until 2023.

There is no suggestion either player is seeking a move away from Liverpool and it is unlikely clubs like Madrid could afford them following the financial ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic.

Anelka came to prominence at Arsenal before making a big-money move to the Bernabeu, where he struggled to reproduce the level that marked him out as one of the best young strikers in the world.

And he believes it would be a mistake for Mane and Salah to join Madrid at this point in time.

“It’s an amazing front three,” he told the Liverpool ECHO.

Meanwhile, James Milner says he can’t wait to get his hands on the Premier League title on Wednesday, saying moments like that are the reason he joined them.

“It will be special, very special,” Milner told Liverpool’s official matchday programme. “It was the reason I signed here in the first place and I’m sure it’s the case for the other lads as well – a club of this size and with its history.

“The fact the wait had been so long meant it was a massive challenge to try and end it and create some of our own history.

“You can see what it means to everyone. The night it was confirmed we were champions, you could see the emotional impact. Not just on us and the manager but the supporters and the past players – the legends. Sir Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard, so many of them.

“When they were messaging and telling us congratulations, you know they really meant it and they were properly made-up. That was great.”
