What’s more, journalist Florian Plettenberg, who has pushed this transfer link along in recent weeks, has claimed movement in Mane’s situation.
“FC Bayern is a serious option for Sadio Mane to change this summer. This transfer is definitely possible,” Plettenberg said.
“We hear that there has been movement in the last few days. There is a clear development to be seen, also in the discussions between his management and also with the player.”
Mane has been instrumental for Liverpool and should not be let go in this fashion considering he was Klopp’s first signing as well.
Liverpool should evaluate their choice and the Champions League final against Real Madrid in the coming weekend will certainly help them.
