The former Liverpool striker believe Mane's outstanding form this season would extend into the coming football seasons, so long as the Senegal international continue to play under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

The obvious is that Mane has been one of Jurgen Klopp's key men in Liverpool's dominance of world football over the past 12 months.

Liverpool have won the Champions League, Super Cup, Club World Cup and are on course to win a first English top-flight title in 30 years - and Mane has played a big part in achieving such turning points.

Mane's superb form for Liverpool that saw him ranked fourth best player in the Ballon d'Or awards and best in Africa has indeed attracted the likes of Real and Barcelona who are considering swooping for him in the summer.

But according to Aldridge, Liverpool could impede their continuous progress and the player's success in the short run, if they allow a transfer to either of the Spanish heavyweights to happen.

Writing on his column for the Liverpool Echo, the 61-year-old said: "Liverpool shouldn’t be too worried about Mane's situation.

"They have never before been in such a strong position to be able to keep hold of their best players.

"Indeed, now would be the worst time for them to start potentially cashing in.

"Mane has probably been our best player this season. And what’s more, he can get even better next season and perhaps even win the Champions League again.

"Not all who leave Liverpool go on to struggle, look at Raheem Sterling at Manchester City.

"But Philippe Coutinho is a great example in recent times of where it can go wrong. He was at the pinnacle of his career when he left Liverpool for Barcelona, but it has all since fallen somewhat flat."What's more, Liverpool are a better team than either Barcelona or Real at present.

"Look, I have a lot of feeling for Barcelona in particular. When I played in Spain, I used to love going there and it was a lucky ground for me.

"But the Premier League is the best league in the world – okay, we might not have the best weather! – and Liverpool are one of the clubs on the planet and, of course, are world champions."
