Manchester United keen on Sadio Mane

Manchester United could make a surprise move for Liverpool legend Sadio Mane, who could leave Bayern Munich after only one season.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Manchester United could take advantage of Bayern Munich’s ongoing problems and make a surprise move for Sadio Mane. The Liverpool legend has not settled in Bavaria quite as expected and could leave the German champions after only one season.

Manchester United have plenty of requirements heading into the summer transfer window. The Premier League giants are keen on signing key personnel in most departments, with attacking reinforcements expected to arrive.

A striker remains their utmost priority in the summer, but Erik ten hag could also look at versatile wide options. In what has been described as a surprise, Manchester United are now linked with Liverpool legend Sadio Mane, with the €45 million-rated attacker likely to become available.

There are plenty of ongoing problems at Bayern Munich, both on and off the pitch. There’s been plenty of drama with the sudden sacking of Julian Nagelsmann, among other news stories. The report also states that star man Joshua Kimmich wants to join Barcelona, and losing him will significantly blow their plans.

However, speculation has been rife about Mane in recent weeks after much-expressed disappointment at his performances for Bayern. He joined the Bavarians in a €32 million deal last summer after many years as a star player under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

Mane could have tremendous interest from the Premier League, with incoming Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino keen to sign him. The 31-year-old could leave Bayern if a sizeable offer arrives from England that could match his financial demands.

Manchester United could offer him what’s required, with the report stating a €20 million package for Mane. Only a handful of clubs can pay that money, with Newcastle United also in the mix. The Magpies are interested in signing Mane in the next window, with Eddie Howe looking for a new attacker.

However, it would be a surprise if Manchester United makes the move for the Liverpool legend in the next window. There are doubts about whether Mane would accept a chance to sign for the Red Devils, considering his allegiance to their arch-rivals Liverpool.

Any move may seem possible for Manchester United if they make an offer close to Mane’s €45 million market valuation. He could improve, but such a deal will not be seen as favourable by their fans, who have experienced the player troubling them over the years in a Liverpool shirt.
