Bayern Munich appear set to take a significant step towards signing Liverpool ’s Sadio Mane having kicked-off a summer fire sale at the Allianz Arena.
The Bundesliga champions are interested in striking a deal for the Senegalese winger in the current window with Mane himself having expressed his desire to leave Anfield for a fresh challenge. Bayern have so far lodged two offers with the Reds – both of which having been rejected.
It has been reported that the Merseyside outfit are hoping to receive around £40million for the former Southampton star and are hopeful of Bayern eventually agreeing to pay that fee. The German side already appear to have plans in place to raise the funds required to take Mane to the Allianz Arena in the near future.
It was previously suggested that up to eight players could be set to leave the club this summer, including a vast array of first-team stars. One already seems close to departing Bayern as their summer exodus kicks-off.
