Sadio Mané joins Bayern on three-year deal

By  | 

Liverpool forward, Sadio Mané is on the brink of joining Bayern Munich after both clubs reached a structured €32m agreement.

A breakthrough in talks was achieved after a Bayern delegation flew to Merseyside on Friday.

Initially, Liverpool had rejected a deal of £25m and £30m for the attacker, but a third proposal has satisfied all parties and it is thought the contract will keep the striker in Germany until 2025.

Despite having one year left in his contract, the Senegalese edges closer to parting ways with the Reds where he scored 120 goals in 269 appearances.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, a 3-year contract is already set to be signed.

“Bayern will pay €32m guaranteed fee for Sadio Mané. Contract already set to be signed, valid until June 2025. Liverpool wanted to sign Nunez in order to approve Sadio’s departure.

“Liverpool will also receive add-ons, for a maximum of potential €40m total fee package,” he tweeted on Friday afternoon.

During his stint with the English side, Mane won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup.

The 30-year-old will become Bayern Munich’s third signing of the transfer window following the arrivals of Ajax pair Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazroual, who both joined last week.
