Sadio Mane transfer to Bayern Munich is slowly taking shape. The club is now trying to find an agreement with Liverpool after having agreed on personal terms with the player. The rumors now claim that Bayern are offering a large salary to Mane.
Hasan Salihamidzic has been under heavy criticism for his transfer activities, the Mane transfer is now supposed to be the „statement transfer“ of this summer. According to SPORT BILD, there is no agreement yet with Liverpool, but it can happen in the coming days.
After having agreed on personal terms, the biggest question now remains the salary. According to sources, the salary that Sadio Mane is supposed to be earning is around 15 million euros at Bayern Munich. SportBild now rejects such claims and confirms that Mane will be earning 20 million euros a year, quite a large amount of salary, in similar regions of Leroy Sane, Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer.
Apparently, Paris Saint-Germain offered Mane a more attractive offer, but due to the many stars at PSG, Mane believes that he could become the top star in Munich.
What’s more interesting, however, is Serge Gnabry’s role in the deal. The club is now ready to sell Gnabry after not reaching an agreement over a contract extension. According to SportBild, Bayern Munich want to push Gnabry out in order to send a signal and sell him quickly. If Mane is to be signed, it would put pressure on Gnabry, as he would realize that his playing minutes would be significantly decreased.
At the moment, Bayern Munich are still working to agree on a fee with Liverpool FC. According to ‚DaveOCKop‘, Bayern have agreed on a three year contract with the 30 years old. The negotiations regarding the fee are already underway. Most likely, the transfer could be completed in few days.
