Liverpool legend Sadio Mane joined Bayern Munich last summer, but he is being linked with a move away from Germany already.
A report from Football Insider claims that Bayern Munich are prepared to sell Sadio Mane for a fee of around £30 million at the end of the season. And Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring the Liverpool legend to Chelsea.
The Argentine manager is expected to take over at Stamford Bridge as the long-term replacement for Graham Potter. It has been a disappointing season for the Blues, and they are set to miss out on Champions League football.
Pochettino will be expected to rebuild the squad properly and challenge for major trophies next season. However, there are a few gaps Chelsea will have to plug in the summer, and they need to bring in a reliable goalscorer.
Mane has been a top-class performer in the Premier League over a number of seasons, earning the tag of Liverpool legend in the process. So he could prove to be a useful acquisition for Chelsea if he manages to regain his form and confidence.
The Senegal international has had a disappointing time at Bayern Munich, and a return to the Premier League could be ideal for him. He has played his best football in the Premier League with Southampton and Liverpool.
The 31-year-old helped Liverpool win every single trophy at club level during his time at Anfield. And he could make a big difference for Chelsea in the final third. The Blues have spent a lot of money over the last couple of windows, and they can certainly afford the reported £30 million asking price for Sadio Mane.
The experienced forward could prove to be a useful short-term acquisition. Not only would he improve Chelsea in the final third, but he could also be the ideal mentor for talented young players like Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke.

It remains to be seen whether the Liverpool legend is open to a move to Stamford Bridge this summer. He has already achieved everything he could have in the Premier League, and he was keen on a move abroad at the start of the season. The move to Bayern Munich has not worked out, but joining a club without Champions League football might not appeal to him.
