Bayern Munich held negotiations with €80m-rated Liverpool winger

Bayern Munich have contacted the agent of Sadio Mane to assess the possibility of a summer move to Allianz Arena. While they have also come in touch with Stuttgart centre-forward Sasa Kalajdzic, Senegal international could emerge as the transfer priority in light of Lewandowski’s uncertain future at the Merseyside club.

The Bundesliga giants are anticipating the sale of the Polish centre-forward, who has visibly shown his frustration at the club and wants to force through a move to Barcelona at the end of the campaign.

Lewandowski’s possible exit has made Bayern Munich desperate to fill the void in the goalscoring department, with Sadio emerging as a possible solution. Regarded as one of the most lethal forwards in the PL, Sadio has been an impressive servant for the Reds over the years.

In 266 competitive games, the Senegalese attacker has scored 119 goals while racking up 48 assists. His contributions in the final third have been critical behind the Reds’ unprecedented success under the German coach. The African attacker has indeed played a starring role in the club’s triumph in the PL and the UCL.

But Mane has not earned the limelight he deserves, with the winger often being overshadowed by his more decorated attacking partner in Salah.

In an attempt to move away from the shadow, Sadio could be compelled to leave Liverpool at the end of the campaign, with Bayern Munich giving him the chance to become an attacking leader of one of the strongest teams in European football.
