Having enjoyed a successful spell at Liverpool FC, Mane joins German giant, FC Bayern
Munich. The Senegal international left the 2022 UEFA Champions League finalist for the
Bundesliga champions in a £41 million deal making him the highest paid African player earning €250,000 per week.
The 30-year-old hinted on his desire to leave Anfield after their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May this year, and with Mane having just one year left on his contract, management of Liverpool allowed him to bid farewell now rather than risk losing him for nothing in the summer of 2023.
Mane’s exit ends his successful career in English Premier League, with his six years at Liverpool seeing him scoring 120 goals in 269 appearances, winning the Champions league, World club championship, the premier league, Carabao cup and the Emirates FA cup.
