Reports: Bayern Munich target Liverpool forward Sadio Mane

Germany’s Machines Bayern Munich are reportedly planning a summer pounce on Liverpool striker Sadio Mane, according to Sky Germany.

While there has been no official dialogue between the two clubs, Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic met the 30-year-old’s agent at the weekend.

Mane is under contract at Anfield until 2023, but talks about a potential new deal were not imminent, with Liverpool said to be focusing on linking negotiations with Mohamed Salah.

After the 2-2 win over Stuttgart on Sunday night, Salihamidzic said when asked if there would be a transfer deal at Bayern: “Let yourself be surprised.

“We have to see what is possible and what is not. We have creative ideas.”

Mane’s current deal with Liverpool is set to expire in 2023.
