Mané was one of the main architects behind Liverpool’s triumph in the Champions League win of 2019 and the Premier League win in 2020 after ages. His partnership with Mo Salah was a nightmare for defenders and will go down as one of the greatest in Premier League history.
Jürgen Klopp, who bought him into the club, had already given hints of Senegalese looking for a new chapter even before the Champions League Final in the pre-match conference.
The German Coach said: “Sadio Mané to Bayern rumours? I couldn’t care less, at the moment… he’s focused on the final. It’s not the first time that I have had a Bayern rumour come up just before a big match”.
Liverpool will now have a mammoth task to replace Mané as he left big shoes to fill and finding a player of his pedigree is not going to be a smooth ride. The good thing for them is that they have a player like Luis Diaz in the ranks who were recruited in the January window and has been a prolific winger so far for them.
FC Bayern Munich tipped to sign Sadio Mané for €30 Million
For Sadio Mané, things are interesting going into the vacation as big heavyweights will be after his signature. Bayern Munich is said to be seriously interested in getting him on board and is ready to splash €30 Million to get the deal done with Liverpool.
There will be many thereabouts for German giants for signing the Senegalese superstar as teams like Juventus, and Inter Milan will be on high alert after Mané’s official communication to Liverpool.
As of now, FC Bayern Munich is the favourite to sign Sadio Mané according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano who broke out the story of Mané’s intentions to leave Merseyside after spending 6 glorious years there.
Whether Sadio goes to Bayern or any other big team, he is going to be a popular figure on Merseyside for his incredible contribution. He has 120 goals to his name in 269 appearances for the Reds and was the go-to man for The German coach ever since signing him from Southampton in 2016 for £34 Million.
Mané leaves a big legacy behind at Liverpool but with peak years in his hand, he is likely to be a fierce player for his next club. The Bavarians are likely to be his next destination and he would be a perfect match for them as they are also looking for a lethal winger after Gnabry’s woes at the right-wing in recent seasons.
