There is a reported verbal agreement between Sadio Mane and Bayern Munich ahead of a deal that will see him leave Liverpool. The underappreciated striker is keen to leave Anfield, with his replacement already signed by the club.
There is a lack of quality strikers in Europe, with the best ones already taken. Clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal and even Real Madrid are on the lookout for a top-quality forward, but it is as simple as searching for water in a desert.
A case of musical chairs is going on between Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Barcelona. Liverpool and Bayern Munich have unhappy strikers in their fold and are keen to resolve the matter quickly. The resolution is not as simple as envisaged. For each club to move ahead, they have to find a way to sort out the futures of these players.
Robert Lewandowski and Sadio Mane have their fates intertwined, and unless one resolves his future, the other cannot move forward. Both players are keen to leave their respective clubs, but they stand in the way of moving to pastures anew. While Lewandowski wants to join Barcelona, Bayern Munich wants to replace him with Sadio Mane.
The Bavarians are in an uncomfortable position. The German giants are looking to replace the Polish striker who wants to leave. It has been a difficult task that has led them to Senegalese superstar Sadio Mane.
The Germans have enjoyed many years of success with Lewandowski without worrying about another striker. With perhaps the best striker in the world in their ranks, they uncharacteristically did not give thought to that position. With the Polish forward now in search of a new adventure, Bayern Munich need to sign another striker.
Reports suggest the Bavarians are on the verge of concluding a deal for Sadio Mane. The Senegalese forward has agreed on a three-year contract with Bayern Munich. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Liverpool forward is about to finalise a deal that sees him join the Bundesliga giants. Both parties have reached a verbal agreement over a three-year contract. Mane is eager to bring his spell at Anfield to an end.
Bayern Munich and Liverpool have not reached an agreement over the transfer fees. Negotiations are in the final stages, with a couple of earlier bids rejected by the Champions League finalists. Bayern Munich are prepared to table new terms that should convince Liverpool to part with their striker.
The arrival of Darwin Nunez from Benfica for a club-record fee means the Anfield club could let Sadio Mane leave. After the outlay on the former Benfica forward, Liverpool want to recoup some cash and beat back two bids from Bayern Munich.
Robert Lewandowski has a year left on his contract. With the player and Barcelona exchanging flirtatious glances at each other, it won’t be long before he leaves Bayern Munich. The departure of Robert Lewandowski hinges on the arrival of Sadio Mane.
Mane is not the goalscorer Lewandowski is, but for Bayern, he is a short-term stop-gap with the Bavarians keen on a long-term solution. Mane can play anywhere across the frontline. The experience of the Senegalese forward and industry is vital to the club. The Bavarians are in the market for another striker, explaining their links to Sasa Kalajdzic.
