Liverpool winger, Sadio Mane is leaving his home in England and transferring to Bayern Munich. He has been spotted in Munich after his medical wearing Bayern merchandise, signing autographs for the fans in Munich.
Mane looks to be replacing a Lewandowski that plans on leaving the Bavarians in a shock exit after the Bavarians have won 10 Bundesliga titles in a row.
During Mane’s time at Liverpool he was able to win a Champions League title in 2019, bring Liverpool a Premier League title in the 2019/2020 season. Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool cemented themselves as one of the strongest teams in the world, and Mane became part of one of the deadliest attacking groups in recent memory with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and later Luis Diaz.
During Mane’s time at Liverpool he had 120 goals in 269 appearances for the club.
Mane has also had success for his national side, Senegal, as they have won the African Cup of Nations in 2021.
In terms of playstyle, Mane is very quick off the sprint and is able to score with both feet and with headers. Mane is well known for his elite decision making and offensive talent.
Mane is known to be a winger that prefers to drift towards in the inside of the pitch, looking to cut inside to create a scoring opportunity, or to make a direct run for the flank when off ball to open up the field for his team.
With this central mindset ingrained in Mane, playing centrally for Bayern would be a likely fit for the attacker.
Mane looks to win Bayern’s 11th Bundesliga title in a row this year, while also looking to impress in European competition.
