Sadio Mane has been pictured in a Bayern Munich shirt for the first time as he prepares to seal a move from Liverpool.
The forward was in Germany for his medical on Tuesday morning ahead of a transfer which could cost around £35m with add-ons. The Bavarian giants struck a deal for Mane late last week, and after some uncertainty the 30-year-old is about to put pen to paper with Die Roten.
Mane is set to be unveiled as a Bayern player imminently, and he has already been photographed in the famous red of the Bavarian powerhouse.
Mane signalled that he was open to leaving Liverpool at the end of 2021/22 and 90minunderstands he even waived some fees in order to seal a switch to the Allianz Arena.
The Reds have already moved to replace the Senegal international by signing coveted striker Darwin Nunez in a €100m deal from Benfica. The Merseysiders also prepared themselves for Mane’s possible exit with the arrival or flying winger Luis Diaz from Porto in January – a player who operates on the same flank.
Meanwhile, Mane becomes Bayern’s third signing of what has been a busy summer already. Right-back Noussair Mazraoui has already joined on a free transfer from Ajax, while Die Roten paid an initial €18.5m to sign his teammate Ryan Gravenberch.
