‘Agreement is possible’ – Sky Sports journalist drops details & fee of potential Mane to Bayern deal

Posted by

Florian Plettenberg has claimed on Twitter that Sadio Mane’s entourage remains in talks with Bayern Munich’s negotiators ahead of a potential summer switch.

The Senegalese international has reportedly decided to depart Liverpool this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The figure of €30m touted has since been disputed by Goal journalist Neil Jones, with the Reds likely to set a more significant asking price ahead of the opening of the next transfer window.

Given the importance of the No.10 to the club and his status as a Ballon d’Or contender, it has to be said anything below £50m is likely to be considered unacceptable.

There is a year left on Mane’s contract, a reality that is sure to be exploited by any potential suitor, though we’re sure to be in safe hands with Michael Edwards’ highly-rated protege, Julian Ward, leading the recruitment team in any negotiations.

The real challenge, of course, will be finding a replacement for one of the leading attackers in world football and one of the key architects of the Jurgen Klopp-led revival.
