Transfer News: Sadio Mane open to joining Bayern Munich
Sky Sports Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg is reporting that Liverpool winger Sadio Mane is open to a move to Bayern Munich this summer. Mane isn’t the only Reds star entering his final year of contract with the club. While Salah’s contract talks have hogged most of the limelight, Mane and Firmino’s possible extensions have taken a backseat.
The aforementioned report claims there have been developments in the talks held between Bayern and the player’s entourage.

Mane has continued to impress for Jurgen Klopp’s side and has had a highly fruitful season, winning the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup.
In 50 appearances across competitions, Mane has scored 23 goals and provided five assists.
