Sadio Mane: Liverpool forward to join Bayern Munich in deal worth up to £35m

Liverpool have agreed a €41m (£35.1m) deal to sell Sadio Mane to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

The Reds will receive a fixed €32m (£27.4m) fee with an additional €6m based on appearances and €3m based on individual and team achievements.

Liverpool turned down two offers from Bayern before accepting their latest offer for the 30-year-old, whose contract with the Reds runs until next summer.

He joined Liverpool for £31m plus £2.5m in add-ons from Southampton in 2016.

Since then, Mane has scored 90 Premier League goals for the Anfield club and finished last season with 23 in all competitions.

The news of his departure follows the signing of Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica on Tuesday for an initial fee of £64million.

Sadio Mane: What does the striker’s departure to Liverpool mean?
Alongside fellow strikers Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, both 30, Mane has been integral to Liverpool’s success in recent years.

The trio helped the club win the Champions League in 2019 and then end a 30-year wait for the league title the following season.

It was also a standout year for Mane, who won the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal before helping Liverpool lift the Carabao Cup and FA Cup and finish runners-up in the Premier League and Champions League. .

Mane is set to replace Robert Lewandowski at Bayern, with the Poland international set to washout the German club having been linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
