Mane to join Bayern Munich in a £35M deal

According to BBC, Liverpool have agreed a 41m euro (£35.1m) deal to sell Sadio Mane to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

The Reds will get a fixed 32million euros (£27.4m) with an additional 6m euros based on appearances and 3m euros based on individual and team achievements.

Mane is ready for a new challenge after six years at Anfield and hinted before the Champions League final that he would be making an announcement on his future.

Bayern were the immediate favourites to sign the attacker, as the German side are in need of further investment in their front line.

The Bundesliga winners are in danger of losing star striker Robert Lewandowski as the Poland international declared his desire to leave this summer, with Barcelona trying to sign him.

Liverpool turned down two bids from Bayern before accepting their latest offer for the 30-year-old, whose deal with the Reds ran until next summer.

He joined Liverpool for £31m plus £2.5m in add-ons from Southampton in 2016.

News of his departure follows Tuesday’s signing of Uruguay forward Darwin Nunez from Benfica for an initial £64m.

Alongside fellow forwards Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, who are both 30, Mane has been integral to Liverpool’s success in recent years.

The trio helped the club win the Champions League in 2019 and then end a 30-year wait for the league title in the following season.

This has also been an exceptional year for Mane, who won the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal before helping Liverpool win the Carabao Cup and FA Cup and finish runners-up in the Premier League and Champions League.

He finished the season with 23 goals in all competitions. 

The forward made 269 appearances for liverpool and scored 120 goals. He also won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup in his time at the Reds.
