Liverpool angry at ‘insulting’ second Mane bid from Bayern including unachievable add-ons

Posted by

Liverpool have rejected Bayern Munich’s second bid for Sadio Mane, citing likely unachievable add-ons that would have only contributed towards a maximum fee of £30m.

This update comes courtesy of the Mirror’s David Maddock on Twitter, with sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, duly informed that the German champions’ second attempt ‘is insulting’.

The Senegalese international’s current terms are set to expire in the summer of 2023, with the clock steadily ticking down towards a departure on a pre-contract agreement.

The notion that our handling of Mane’s exit should be influenced by prior good relations built up from the sale of Thiago Alcantara, which seems to be guiding the Bundesliga outfit’s approach to negotiations, is absolute nonsense, to say the least.

As superb a player our 30-year-old wide man is too, the prospect of him earning a hat-trick of Balon d’Ors – a feat rarely seen outside the duopoly of Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – is objectively unlikely.

Add on top the need for our No.10 to help his potential new employers earn ‘multiple’ Champions League titles (according to a tweet from Paul Joyce), and one can more than understand why Liverpool feel outraged by the latest attempt.

One thing is clear regardless – Sadio Mane will not be moving the Bavarians this summer without a significantly improved third offer, far closer to the desired £42.5m we’re seeking.

  1. In fairness FSG aren’t averse to lowballing tactics themselves…so their anger is a bit rich.

    That being said Mane is easily worth @ 40 mill

  2. I don’t think Liverpool have anything to be angry about. As a fan, I’d be delighted if Sadio stayed on for the final year of his contract. He has been a truly fantastic player for us. Unless we get a silly offer for him, I don’t see why we would want to sell him? It takes three to make a transfer happen, Bayern and the player might want it to happen, but we don’t, so we have no reason to sell for anything other than a lot more than his so called market value.
