Bayern have big plans. The transfer of Liverpool star Sadio Mané is increasingly likely. But the Senegalese would not come as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski. Rather, it would probably result in the sale of Serge Gnabry.
Mané and Lewandowski: There are signs of a surprise at Bayern. The transfer of Liverpool star Sadio Mané to Munich is becoming more and more likely. But: According to “Bild”, Bayern are not planning to use the striker as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski. But as a supplement to Poland. That means: Should Mané come, he would be used as a winger and Lewandowski would continue to play in the middle.
The situation: Mané’s contract in Liverpool expires in 2023, like Lewandowski’s in Munich. Bayern does not want to sell Lewandowski against his wishes. The talks between Munich and Mané, on the other hand, are said to have recently become more intense. The 30-year-old Senegalese should be available for less than 50 million euros, “Sky” recently reported.
Mané instead of Gnabry: Bayern do not want to let Lewandowski go even if they buy Mané, but Serge Gnabry would then be a clear candidate for sale. The German national player’s contract also ends in 2023, most recently Gnabry rejected an offer from the club to extend it. Real Madrid are said to be interested in him. Especially after PSG star Kylian Mbappé’s transfer failed.
