Sadio Mané is not only one of Liverpool’s key players, but also Bayern Munich’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic. This combination causes some upsets ahead of the Champions League final on Saturday.

Memories of 2013: FC Bayern chose Sadio Mané as their potential king transfer and received “positive signals” from the Senegalese, according to various media reports. Mané’s current coach, Jürgen Klopp, is driving Bayern’s transfer courtship into a frenzy. “It’s not the first time in my career that a rumor about Bayern Munich has surfaced before a big game,” said Klopp on Friday at the press conference ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Change hammer before an important game: The 54-year-old is referring to the spectacular transfer from Mario Götze, who went to Bayern Munich in 2013 for 37 million euros. The move, which came as a surprise at the time, was leaked a day before BVB’s semi-final second leg against Real Madrid and created significant atmospheric disruption between the top German clubs, who later met at Wembley in the Champions League final – with the better ending for them the Munich ones.

Klopp stays cool: But Klopp is trying to keep his cool this time: “Sadio is in the form of his life, it’s a pleasure to watch him. I don’t care about the rumors about Bayern Munich at the moment. We’re fully focused on the game.” The winger wants to clarify what’s happening to Mané (contract until 2023) after the final – which sounds more like a farewell. Apparently Klopp agrees: “Wherever he will play next year, he will be a fantastic player!”
