Report: Club put £21.3m plus add-on offer on table for 'amazing' Liverpool player, talks in 'decisive stage'

Liverpool look set to lose Sadio Mane this summer amid reported interest from Bayern Munich.

Over the past few days, there has been a lot of speculation linking the Reds forward with the Bundesliga giants.

Now, reports from Germany are suggesting that Bayern are closing in on Mane.

Sky Sport – via Sport Witness – claims a move for the Liverpool star is ‘taking more and more concrete shape’.

Indeed, negotiations are reportedly in the ‘decisive stage’ now.

Bayern would like to pay Liverpool a fee of €30m (£21.3m) plus additional payments of €5-10m (£4.3m-£8.5m).

They have put that offer ‘on the table’, but whether Liverpool are willing to accept remains to be seen.

Bayern are also reportedly offering the 30-year-old a three-year deal to move to the Allianz Arena.

This shouldn’t be a problem – it’s only a question of the transfer fee, according to the report.

Mane ‘very fond’ of Bayern offer?

Meanwhile, BILD – via Sport Witness – takes a look at Mane’s purported stance towards a potential Bayern switch.

Hasan Salihamidzic has reportedly ‘deposited an overall package’ with the player’s representatives for a ‘possible collaboration’.

Mane is apparently ‘very fond’ of what’s been presented to him.

It not only offers annual earnings of over €20m (£17m) but convinces him personally as well.

Mane likes the ‘esteem’ in which Bayern hold him, and both sides want the deal to happen, added the report.

Liverpool are apparently expecting Bjorn Bezemer – Mane’s representative – to ‘come forward’ in the coming days and ‘demand the release of his client’ this summer.

Mane has been one of Liverpool’s best players over the last few years.

He has played a huge part in helping the Reds win a multitude of trophies in the past few years.

However, Mane – who Alisson Becker recently called “amazing” – looks like he wants a new challenge.

And with his contract expiring in 2023, this is the last chance Liverpool have of getting a decent sum for him.
