Sadio Mane has had a superb trophy-laden season, winning the FA Cup and League Cup with Liverpool and the AFCON with Senegal. He has also been nominated for the PFA Mens Player of the Year and is in contention for the African Player of the Year after winning player of the tournament in the African Cup of Nations.
But is is now been widely reported that he is keen to leave Anfield and go again with a different club. Bayern Munich, who are in the market for a new forward this summer due to Robert Lewandowski’s imminent departure, are said to be keen to sign him, and according to Sky Sports Germany, have now made an offer.
Bayern are offering a three-year contract to Mane, with personal terms not looking to be an issue. Despite only having one year on his current contract, Bayern are said to be willing to spend €30m with further potential add-ons of €5-10m.
It is no surprise Bayern Munich are looking to the Senegalese forward, who has provided 23 goals and 5 assists this season, 5 of those goals coming in the Champions League. Mane has also won the Premier League, the Champions League, the Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup since joining Liverpool in 2016.
Mane would bring a unique option to the Bundesliga champions, with his ability to play through the middle and on the wing. Nagelsmann has previously utilised players with similar ability as a 9-and-a-half, which would allow Mane to drop back to secure the ball – and drive the attack forward.
Liverpool have already been linked with attacking replacements such as Benfica’s Darwin Nunez.
