Sadio Mane is close to agreeing a shock £25million transfer to Bayern Munich as the forward edges closer to a Liverpool exit, according to reports. The 30-year-old hinted that he would make an announcement about his future following Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid, but it now appears that he has opted to move to Germany.
Mane is about to enter the final year of his contract with the Reds and there has been speculation over his future. Liverpool are also yet to agree to an extension with strike partner Mohamed Salah.
The Merseyside outfit risked losing Mane for free next summer when his deal expires. However, it appears that they have decided to cash in while they can still receive a fee for the prolific striker.
Mane is close to agreeing a deal to join Bayern this summer, according to a blockbuster revelation by French publication L’Equipe. The report claims that Liverpool will receive just £30million for a player who has had a major impact at Anfield.
It comes after Mane told journalists that he would reveal all about his future after Saturday’s clash with Madrid in Paris. It initially appeared to be good news for Liverpool, with a couple of reports earlier this week suggesting that Mane was in line for a new contract.
But it has now emerged that Mane’s entourage met with Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic to discuss a move 10 days ago.
