According to a news release on Sunday, Liverpool are determined to allow Senegal star Sadio Mane to move to 25 million ($ 31.6 million).
It comes in the wake of reports that Bayern Munich, who have won the German Football League (Bundesliga) title for the past ten seasons, are interested in the Senegalese star.
And the British news agency (PA Media) has not yet contacted Liverpool management about the possible deal with Bayern, who will miss the services of its Polish striker Robert Lewandowski this summer, this Sunday.
A day after Liverpool’s defeat in the Champions League final against Real Madrid, reports indicate that Mane wants to move to Germany before his current contract expires 12 months later.
The company pointed out that Mane (30 years) had not yet made clear his intentions for the 30 million club from Southampton six years ago.
But with only 12 months left in his current contract, despite scoring 23 goals with the Reds in all competitions this season, the chances of Mane’s contract with Liverpool being extended are slim.
Last Wednesday, Mane hinted at announcing a “special” decision about his long-term plans after the Champions League final against Real Madrid, but the player did not appear in front of the media after the 1-0 defeat to Spain in the French capital, Paris.
Liverpool coach German Jன்rgen Klopp’s response to rumors that he had been transferred to Mane Bayern at a pre – match press conference in Paris was unclear, and he did not give a full answer.
“Wherever Sadio plays next year, he will be a great player,” Klopp said.
Mane is not the only contract issue Liverpool have to settle for this summer as his two attacking colleagues, Egyptian Mohamed Salah and Brazilian Roberto Firmino, are entering the final 12 months of their contract.
And Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard advised Mane not to leave the England club.
Current Aston Villa coach Mohamed Salah said he would stay on the team, adding, “I know there’s some noise around Mane, but why should they (Mane & Salah) want to leave the team? Do they know they can compete at the end of the season?” .
