Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane reacts to Liverpool’s alleged rejection of Bayern Munich bid

Due to Covid, the German giants have offered less than Liverpool paid for Thiago during the summer transfer window.

Sadio Mané, who spent six years at Liverpool and won every major title, is expected to leave this summer in pursuit of a fresh challenge and possibly one last huge salary, with Bayern Munich the frontrunners to sign the 30-year-old Senegalese forward.

However, the Bavarian giants will not be getting Mané for their first bid, according to sources in Germany that Liverpool did not even bother to answer to a €25 million offer made earlier this week, which included €21 million up front and an additional €4 million in add-ons.

Despite German claims that the pitiful cost is comparable to what Liverpool paid for Thiago in the summer of 2020, it is substantially cheaper because the Reds paid similar figures in Pounds, making the trade worth close to €30 million in Bayern’s currency.

Thiago’s move occurred during the summer, when football was suspended and finances were unknown owing to Covid, and forwards tend to command higher transfer fees, particularly those who have been included in the Ballon d’Or conversation prior to their move.

Bayern Munich’s offer of 15-20 percent less what Liverpool paid for Thiago is ridiculous, especially considering they want €40 million for a 33-year-old Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern should return with a more realistic offer for Mané’s sake.
