They make a list every year and it regularly has A-League players in it. It’s funny reading back on some of the lists, only a handful actually make it in top leagues.

Oh is he?

4 goals in 7 league matches. 5 in 9 all comps.

I'll take a cooked Sadio Mane.
No one's stopping you. Just don't think he's on the same level as a Mo Salah or VVD when it comes to what his wage should be.

He's scored a couple lately but he's spamming shots and passing up better options because he's so fixated on getting his goals to prove his worth. Just don't see it with him like a few years ago.

Not on the same level. He just should be on far more thatn 100k. Mo and VVD should be the top earners with Mane on the next level down with Ali and Fabinho.

No idea what we're doing with the front three as all have 2 years left on their contract with no renewals yet.

Mane had a poor season last season, but he's had a pretty good start to the season this season. Still giving it a bit of time to see if he is back to his best though but it's been a solid start.

Im well aware of that but we just extended Hendo and VVD who are 31 and 30. Both older than those three.

Mo is a special case to because he looks after himself like Ronaldo does and he might be the best player on the planet. If we dont extend him I'll lose my mind.

they're not going to go anywhere. they would just be deciding how many years they give them
