Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have today confirmed the signing of 30-year-old Senegalese forward Sadio Mané from Liverpool, joining for a reported €41m including bonuses.
The Senegal international has signed a three-year contract with the Bundesliga side until 2025, ending his six-year stay at Liverpool where he won every trophy possible in club football.
Mané passed his medical examinations on Wednesday and was presented as a Bayern Munich player at the Allianz Arena, which is reserved for the club’s biggest transfers.
The former RB Salzburg and Southampton attacker isn’t a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer. Mané is expected to be mainly used on the flanks, providing competition for Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sané.
Speaking about his decision to join Bayern Munich, Mané told Bild: “When my advisor first told me about Bayern Munich’s interest, I was hooked. I saw myself there right away. For me, it was the right club at the right time. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world and the team always fights for every title.”
Mané scored 16 and created four in 34 Premier League games for Liverpool last season, taking his tally to 120 goals and 48 assists in 269 games since joining Liverpool in 2016.
