Sadio Mane Seals $40 Million Bayern Munich Transfer

The transfer saga has finally come to its conclusion. Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed to German media that Bayern Munich had reached a deal with Liverpool to sign Sadio Mané.

Liverpool will receive an initial €32 million ($33 million) plus performance-based bonuses that could see the deal grow to just under €40 million ($41 million).

The 30-year-old Senegalese forward  can play on both wings but also in the middle. Mane is the big-name signing the club wanted to present to its fans.

On the pitch, Mané could mean some significant changes in the way Bayern Munich will attack.

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann has long toyed with the idea of playing a 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 formation. That new system would see Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sané, Serge Gnabry and Mané rotate positions. It would be a significant step away from Bayern’s traditional attacking outlook. However, Nagelsmann believes that it will make his side more flexible and successful.
