Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich want Sadio Mané as the replacement for the outbound Robert Lewandowski. Bayern is reaching out to Sadio Mané and Liverpool in hopes of signing the Senegalese winger. But it may be difficult for the German club to secure the signature of the forward as Liverpool seems to be the club to be at, at this moment!
Sadio Mané has been on top form this season, scoring seemingly at free will. He has scored 22 goals in 44 matches in all competitions this season. The winger has lost his place on the wing at Liverpool and instead is occupying the CF position in the absence of Roberto Firmino. Liverpool’s signing of Luis Diaz had put doubt on the future of Mané at Liverpool, it seems that Bayern was monitoring the situation and are finally trying to swoop in for Sadio Mané.
🚨 Bayern Munich have contacted Sadio Mané to replace Robert Lewandowski, in case the striker signs for Barcelona.

Mané is one of the most prolific strikers in the Premier League today. He is one-half of the deadly wing attack pair with his teammate Mohamed Salah. Will the Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp want to break up this successful partnership? Jurgen infamously has a lifelong rivalry with Bayern Munich. He managed to snatch away two titles from Bayern’s grasp in the Bundesliga during his time with Borussia Dortmund.
Klopp recently revealed that he rejected Bayern’s offer for a managerial position quite a few times to stay with Liverpool. Will his star player Sadio Mané follow in his footsteps and reject Bayern?
Sadio seems to be currently enjoying his time at Liverpool and at the international level. He recently won the African Cup of Nations and subsequently also qualified with his team for the world cup. Both times beating his teammate Mo Salah’s Egypt. This has fortunately not caused dissent within the Liverpool ranks and the team seems to be playing their best football, reaching all possible finals this season.
It remains to be seen if Bayern Munich can get the signature of Sadio Mané.
