According to media reports, Hasan Salihamidzic, FC Bayern’s sporting director, is in Liverpool on Friday to personally complete Sadio Mané’s transfer to Munich.

Summit in England: Sadio Mané (30) is moving from Liverpool to Bayern Munich. According to consistent reports from “Mirror” and “Bild”, a Munich delegation headed by sports director Hasan Salihamidzic (45) is in Liverpool on Friday to finalize the transfer in conversation with LFC sports director Julian Ward (40).

Short, compact, clear

Improved offer: The German record champions were rebuffed with their first two offers for the Senegalese at the “Reds” and are now said to have increased the fixed transfer fee to 30 million euros. In addition, Liverpool should be persuaded to agree with the promise of further, performance-related bonus payments.

Crucial approach: According to “Sport1”, Liverpool should want to collect at least 41 million euros – the sum for which Mané came from Southampton in 2016. Bavaria itself does not want to exceed the 40 million euro mark. An agreement doesn’t seem far off now. Originally, the LFC had asked for 50 million euros, but FCB only offered 30.5 million at the beginning.
