Romano tweeted:

“Sadio Mané will be in Germany on Tuesday in order to undergo medical tests and sign his three-year contract as new Bayern player. First part of paperworks already completed with Liverpool.”

“€32m fee guaranteed. €6m add-ons are easy as linked to appearances.”

Supporters will be gutted

The Liverpool left winger has established himself as a fan favourite and a club legend for his efforts over the last six years, so it is no wonder that supporters will be absolutely gutted to see Mane leave this summer.

The 30-year-old leaves Anfield having won the Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Super Cup and Liverpool’s first-ever Premier League title in 2019/20, scoring 120 goals and contributing 48 assists in all competitions.

Jurgen Klopp has always held high praise for Mane, dubbing the Reds forward “world-class” after his winner against Aston Villa last season:

“He’s a machine, I told him after the game.

“Massive player. [His] physicality is brutal, this mix of technique, desire, and physicality in this moment when everybody has a few yards in the legs…you can see it with him to be honest. Top goal, just fantastic, a world-class player.”

The Merseyside giants have already made the club record-breaking signing of Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez who will now have big boots to fill and a huge responsibility on his shoulders to deliver the output and effectiveness in the forward line that the team will sorely miss without Mane.

With Divock Origi’s contract expiration and Taki Minamino reportedly on the move this summer, as well as Mane’s departure imminent it will be interesting to see if Liverpool make another move this summer with Raphinha and Marco Asensio both linked to potential moves to Anfield.
