Sadio Mane is now closer to a Liverpool exit this summer window. He has been at the club for the last six years. Bayern Munich has come up as a possible destination for him. The German club has bid €25m for the 30-year old. But the response from Liverpool stands as a big no. The club hails Mane at a higher value and will not let him go cheap. Nevertheless, Bayern will come back with a new offer for the player. Mane joined Liverpool in 2016 from Southampton. Notably, his move came after Klopp joined the club. The pair achieved lots of success over the years.
Mane has won numerous titles at his current club. Furthermore, a lot of individual awards have also come his way. Notably, Mane won the Africa Cup of Nations for his country in early 2022. If he is to leave this summer, his last match for the club will be the 2022 UCL final against Real Madrid.
Sadio Mane is closer to a Liverpool exit than ever before
Mane will enter the final year of his Liverpool contract. In the case of Liverpool, there is a risk of losing him for free next summer. The player still holds a high market value as one of the star players for the club. Hence, if they are to cash in, they’ll have to cash in now. The rumours of a move away started emerging ahead of the UCL final on May 29. He said he’ll answer about his Liverpool future after the final. His team went on to lose the final match by 1-0. Hence, Mane’s comments also made headlines.
He has previously indicated his views on leaving the club. However, his biggest indication came after a match he played for Senegal. He told the media that he feels that most Senegalese people want him to leave the club. He also says that he is likely to follow their advice. It makes the exit of Mane from Liverpool even closer to reality.
Will Bayern Benefit From The Move?
Bayern is on the verge of losing Lewandowski to Barca. The club will need to find a star forward for next season. It was around this time that Mane made it to their wishlist. Mane is also keen on the move. Hence, the transfer will indeed benefit Bayern. The move promises a win-win deal for both parties.
