Mane’s contract at Liverpool runs out in the summer of 2023; negotations over a new deal have been difficult; Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic met Mane’s agent over the week; Salihamidzic said the club “have creative ideas” when asked about the Bayern’s transfer plans
Bayern Munich are interested in signing Liverpool forward Sadio Mane this summer, according to Sky Germany.
While there has been no official dialogue between the two clubs, Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic met the 30-year-old’s agent over the weekend.
The Senegal international is under contract until 2023, but talks over a possible new deal have been difficult and reports suggest Mane is unhappy Mohamed Salah’s contract talks have taken priority at Anfield.
Mane has made 47 appearances in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side this term, scoring 21 goals.
The forward has previously been linked with a move away from Anfield, with speculation surrounding his Liverpool future sparking interest from Real Madrid prior to signing fresh terms on Merseyside back in November 2019.
After the 2-2 draw against Stuttgart on Sunday evening, Salihamidzic said when asked whether there would be a big-name transfer at Bayern: “Let yourself be surprised.
“We have to see what is possible and what is not. We have creative ideas.”
Liverpool, who currently sit three points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, have declined to comment.
They visit Aston Villa on Tuesday, live on Sky Sports, aiming to close the gap on Pep Guardiola’s side before contesting the FA Cup final with Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday.
