Another massive news comes out today. Liverpool star Sadio Mane is very close to joining the Bundesliga champion, FC Bayern Munich. Meanwhile, Arsenal are hopeful of signing Gabriel Jesus from City this window.
Mane to Bayern
Sadio Mane, one of the top players for Liverpool, is joining the German club, Bayern Munich. Mane confirmed his departure from Liverpool earlier. But, his fans were very desperate to know his next destination. Finally, the wait is over as Liverpool have agreed to sell Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich.
Sadio Mane has entered the final year of his contract with Liverpool. So, the English club offered him to renew the contract. But Mane wasn’t interested in renewing the contract. As a result, Liverpool had no other option than to sell him in this window. Otherwise, Mane could leave Liverpool for free of cost.
Anyway, Liverpool were expecting to get around 40 million euros for Sadio Mane. They turned down two bids previously as Bayern Munich were nowhere close enough to the asking price. Finally, Liverpool have reached an agreement with Bayern. According to the Sky Sports, Sadio Mane will join Bayern Munich for £35.1m. But, initially, they will pay around £27.5m, and the rest will be paid in two installments.
However, Sadio Mane joined Liverpool in 2016 from another English club, Southampton FC. The transfer fee was £34 million at that time. Since his joining, Mane played six seasons for Liverpool. During this time, Sadio Mane played 269 games, where he scored 120 goals for Liverpool. With Liverpool, he won the English Premier League and the Champions League.
Gabriel Jesus is leaving Man City.
Manchester City, the champion of the EPL, already have signed two amazing players, Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez. Erling Haaland has already proved himself at Borussia Dortmund. On the other hand, Julian Alvarez is a rising star. He has scored six goals in one match for River Plate. Anyway, the arrival of these two players has made the futurue of Gabriel Jesus uncertain. So, he decided to leave Man City. Arsenal are interested in signing him. But, the transfer fee could be a big problem. Man City want £50m for Jesus, while Arsenal are ready to pay £30m. The next few days will be very crucial for both parties.
