However, it's still unknown if Liverpool will accept this bid.
Bayern Munich have offered the Liverpool forward a three-year deal and negotiations are now in the ‘decisive stage’ as the move is 'taking more and more concrete shape’.
However, the Sky report confirms that Mane will not be a direct replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who has publically expressed his interest in departing Germany this summer.
🚨 NEW: Liverpool are expected to be told by Sadio Mane's agent Bjorn Bezemer that the player, who has scored 120 goals in 269 appearances for Liverpool, wishes to leave and that manager Jurgen Klopp has sanctioned a possible deal. #awlive [bild] pic.twitter.com/o3GfW1R6ag
Anfield Watch Verdict
With Mane's contract expiring at the end of the 2022/23 season, if Liverpool were to sell him this summer then they'd at least get something for him.
A report from The Athletic's James Pearce earlier today, as cited by LFC Transfer Room's Twitter account, claimed that Liverpool have set Mane's price tag at £42.5m amid interest from Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
With that in mind, Bayern's current bid of €30m plus €5-€10m in add-ons is still a bit off the Reds' valuation.
It seems like the Liverpool hierachy have realised they're going to lose Sadio this summer. BILD, as cited by Anfield Watch, claim that Mane's agent, Bjorn Bezemer, will tell Liverpool that his player wishes to leave and that manager Jurgen Klopp has sanctioned a possible deal.
If Klopp has sanctioned the sale of Mane then I trust him to have someone good enough lined up to replace the Senegalese striker.
Mane has been a key part of Liverpool's success since he joined and we, as Liverpool fans, will be forever grateful for that. He has written his name in our history.
