Mané & Bayern: Three questions about the transfer rumor

Would Mané go to the Bundesliga?

Sadio Mané plays at Liverpool FC and is currently perhaps the best team and the best league in the world. The competition in the Bundesliga is undoubtedly less demanding. But: Mané has won everything with the Reds. It is conceivable that he is looking for a new challenge. However, it is questionable whether this will then be in Munich. Today, ‘Mundo Deportivo’ also brings FC Barcelona into play as interested parties. For classification: Mané is only tied to Liverpool until 2023, talks about an extension are faltering.

Does Mané suit FC Bayern?

Mané has the ability to instantly boost almost any team. So does the Bavarians. However, the age of the Senegalese should give the people of Munich something to think about. Mané is already 30 years old and thrives on his speed. This usually decreases at some point – and with it the quality. Mané can be used flexibly on the offensive. In Liverpool he mostly plays as a left winger, but can also play on the right or even as a nine. Julian Nagelsmann relies on offensive rail players in Munich, Mané would not fit into this role as he would have to stick to the line there rather than build in his dreaded diagonal runs.

Is Mané affordable for FC Bayern?

Mané is said to only earn around six million euros a year in Liverpool and wants to earn significantly more in the future. Bayern could offer him a double-digit million amount. In addition, there would certainly be a lavish fee – or Serge Gnabry (26) as an exchange. The overall package is – as usual for top players – expensive. In this context, Mané’s age must be considered again. There is no guarantee that a huge investment will pay off.
