Others such as Fabrizio Romano and NicoloSchira have also confirmed the agreement reached between Liverpool and Bayern Munich for Mane.Senegalese international Mane has been at Liverpool since he signed for the Merseyside club from fellow Premier League team Southampton in the summer of 2016. He has spent six years at Liverpool since joining from the Saints. Mane has a year left on his current Liverpool deal, but he wants to leave the club for a new challenge.

During his time at Liverpool, Mane has won every competition possible including the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup. He won two trophies with Liverpool during the latest season which ended last month.
