Sadio Mane has 12 months left on his Liverpool contract; Bayern are expected to offer the forward a three-year deal; Mane is yet to inform Liverpool of his decision; Liverpool lost 1-0 to Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday
Sadio Mane has not told Liverpool he wants to leave amid links with a move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Liverpool are expecting contact from the German club but would want more than the €30million (£35m) being quoted to contemplate doing a deal for the Senegal international, who has 12 months left on his current deal.
The club’s sporting director Hasan Salihamdzic will lead negotiations, while CEO Oliver Kahn and his predecessor Karl-Heinz Rumenigge watched Mane at Saturday night’s Champions League final.
Mane hinted on Wednesday he would announce a “special” decision on his long-term plans after the Paris showpiece but following the 1-0 defeat at the Stade de France, the forward did not make an appearance in front of the media.
Manager Jurgen Klopp was asked about the Bayern rumours at his pre-match press conference in Paris and his answer was non-committal.
