Liverpool forward Sadio Mane insists he remains happy at Anfield but has refused to rule out a move to Real Madrid in the future.

But the Senegal worldwide, in Russian Federation readying for his team's June 19 opener against Poland, said his immediate future lies at Anfield.

"I am very happy in Liverpool and my contract will last for three more years", the 26-year-old, a former Red Bull Salzburg player, told Austrian newspaper Salzburger Nachrichten. "I want to win trophies, especially the Champions League".

But discussing the prospect of being the Lions of Teranga's "superstar", Mane showcased a humility that will be familiar to Liverpool supporters.

Mané has more pressing matters on his mind right now, starting with Senegal's World Cup campaign which gets underway next Tuesday against Poland.
