Liverpool agree deal to sell Mane


Sadio Mane is set to join Bayern Munich after a £35m transfer fee was agreed with Liverpool

Liverpool have reached an agreement with Bayern Munich for the sale of Sadio Mane.

The ECHO understands the overall package is worth just over £35m after the clubs agreed a €41m deal for the Senegalese. The Reds will receive a fixed fee of €32m (£27.4m) with a further €9m (£7.7m) in add-ons.

From those add-ons, Liverpool will pocket €6m (£5.1m) based on appearances with the remaining €3m (£2.6m) based on individual and team achievements.

The fee eclipses what the Reds paid Southampton for the forward back in 2016, with that deal proving to be worth £31m with a further £2.5m in add-ins. The Saints do not receive any additional money from Mane’s move to Bayern Munich.

Liverpool had already rejected two offers from the Bavarians for the 30-year-old, who is out of contract at Anfield next summer, with the opening bid worth €25m plus €5m add-ons, which were all based on individual and team achievements.

Meanwhile, their second offer was a £30m package, worth only an initial £23.5m, with Liverpool only standing to bank the full total if Bayern won the Champions League in all three of the seasons they want Mane to sign up for, as well as the player winning the Ballon d'Or for three consecutive years.

Mane will now leave the Reds after six seasons at Anfield, having scored 120 goals in 269 appearances and won the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, European Super Cup, FA Cup and League Cup along the way.
