With Liverpool star Sadio Mane heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich, it has been reported that Julian Nagelsmann has spoken to the African star as the transfer gathers momentum.
The Senegalese star could well be heading towards the exit doors at Anfield soon, calling time on a successful six year spell at the club. Mane became a fan favourite among the club’s adoring fans, while forming an on-field relationship with Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, of which many deemed to be one of Europe’s deadliest attacking trios in recent times.
In the 2021/22 campaign, Mane was once again an integral component to Liverpool’s success, as they managed to reach three cup finals while finishing second in the Premier League.
The ex-Southampton star featured on 51 occasions, scoring 23 goals while recording five assists along the way. Now though, it has been reported that the Allianz Arena could become Mane’s new home.
According to the Daily Mail, Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann has already spoken to Mane amid the club’s negotiations.
Regarding the business side of the move, the publication reports that Bayern Munich are £8.5 million short of the Red’s evaluation. The six-time UEFA Champions League winners reportedly put a £42.5 million price tag on Mane.
It’s also been reported that Liverpool are leading the race to sign Benfica star striker, Darwin Nunez, with a club record fee of £85 million being spoken about as the club look to rearrange their attacking department.
