Report: What Sadio Mane agreed to do in order to force through speedy Bayern Munich switch from Liverpool
Sadio Mane is close to leaving Liverpool to join Bayern Munich, with multiple outlets reporting this afternoon that a deal has now been agreed.
Mane will move to Bayern for around £35m, according to Sky Sports anyway. It’s a deal which sees Liverpool bring in more than they paid to sign Mane from Southampton in the first place, while they’ve also enjoyed what are probably the prime years of his career.
However, while the move has been touted for some time now, 90Min has reported that Mane had to take one matter into his own hands to force the deal through. 90Min reports how Mane spoke to Liverpool and agreed to wave any personal financial earnings from the deal, to push it through. In a nutshell, it appears Mane has decided not to ask for any sort of signing on fee to move.
For Mane, it is now a chance for a fresh start in a new country. His performances in Liverpool are deserving of a move to another giant of the game, and there’s no doubt he’ll flourish in Germany.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have paid big money for Darwin Nunez and they’ll be hoping he can replicate Mane’s success.
TBR’s View: Mane Has Never Been About The Money
Well, that’s the impression you get from him, judging by stories you see in the media about his generosity and how he’s distributed his wealth back home in Senegal.
Of course, he is a well-paid player and has been one of the very top earners in Liverpool. But you do feel this move to Bayern isn’t about money, more that it’s a chance to experience something new.
Liverpool fans, although gutted to see Mane go, will no doubt wish him well. He’s done more than enough in the Red of Liverpool to deserve good wishes.
