Sadio Mane‘s potential move from Liverpool to Bayern Munich this summer has edged closer to its completion, according to a report.
The 30-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield in the upcoming transfer window due to a failure to agree to a contract extension with the Merseyside club.
Mane’s current deal expires in just 12 months time, prompting interest from the likes of Bayern in recent weeks, who are said to view the Senegalese international as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who could be departing the Allianz Arena for Barcelona.
Ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League final against Real Madrid in Paris on Saturday, Mane revealed that he would discuss his future following the game.
However, L’Equipe are reporting that a potential move to the Bundesliga is already close to being agreed, with the transfer fee said to be worth around €30m (£25.5m).
It was recently reported that the forward’s representatives had already met with Bayern chief Hasan Salihamidzic to discuss a possible move to the Bavarians in recent weeks, but the French media outlet suggest that those talks have advanced.
Mane has scored 120 goals in 268 appearances for Liverpool since making the £32m move to Merseyside from Southampton in 2016, helping his current side to the 2019-20 Premier League title, one FA Cup, one EFL Cup and one Champions League trophy during his stay so far.
