Former Liverpool star Sadio Mane set for shock return to Premier League rivals
Former Liverpool star Sadio Mane is planning a shocking comeback to premier league rivals.
According to the most recent rumours, Sadio Mane, a former Liverpool star, could be on the verge of a contentious Premier League comeback with Chelsea.
During his six-year stay in Merseyside, Mane was incredibly successful, winning the Premier League, the Champions League, and the FA Cup under Jurgen Klopp.
The 31-year-old cemented his spot in the Reds’ annals by amassing 120 goals and 48 assists throughout all competitions.
Last summer, he made the decision to end his career at Anfield in favor of a new challenge with Bayern Munich.
However, the move has not gone quite according to plan, with the Senegal international coming under fire for his poor performances on the pitch as well as his behaviour off it.
Mane was brought in to help replicate Robert Lewandowski’s role at the Allianz arena, but he has managed just seven Bundesliga goals all season.
While the forward was suspended from training and fined after allegedly punching teammate Leroy Sane after Bayern’s Champions League defeat to Manchester City.
However, Chelsea are seemingly willing to overlook Mane’s underwhelming spell in Germany, believing he could be a useful addition at Stamford Bridge.
Mane to Chelsea?
Since Todd Boehly entered the frame last summer, Chelsea have spent nearly £600 million on new players such as Mykhailo Mudryk and Enzo Fernandez.
So far, they have made little difference, with the Blues having slipped into the bottom half of the Premier League table, just 10 points clear of the relegation zone.
However, the club aren’t finished just yet, and are eyeing up a shock move for Mane this summer, claim Football Insider.
Bayern will reportedly listen to offers for the player, but are thought to want a to recoup the £35 million they paid for him last summer.
Whilst Chelsea must ensure they stay within the laws of financial fair play, following this season’s huge spending spree
