Liverpool confirm that Sadio Mane has signed for Bayern Munich for reported £35 million fee
In a statement, Liverpool have confirmed rumours that Sadio Mane has left the club to sign for Bayern Munich in a move worth around £35 million including add-ons. The 30-year-old signed for the Reds in 2016 and went onto make just over 260 appearances, contributing to 158 goals in the process.
With just one year left on his contract, reports indicated that Sadio Mane believed that his time at Liverpool was over and thus wanted a new challenge. That had, reportedly, piqued Bayern Munich’s interest with the Bavarian giants overly keen on a move for the Senegalese forward. However, while Liverpool rejected Bayern’s first two bids, reports indicated that the Reds had finally accepted the offer.
