Liverpool are close to signing Darwin Nunez but Sadio Mane may still stay at the club as Bayern Munich consider their options.
The Reds are signing Nunez, many believe, as a replacement for Mane.
The Senegal star wants to leave to broaden his horizons and find a new challenge after completing club football with Liverpool.
Mane has now won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.
There’s nothing left for him to win at Liverpool bar winning more of the same trophies he has already added to his trophy cabinet.
A move to the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich would give him a new lease on life, so to speak, but it may be ‘dead’ in the water.
This comes from the Mirror, who claims that after comments from Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić, the Bavarians could move on from their interest in Mane.
Salihamidžić said: “Generally speaking, we’re trying to strengthen our team. We’re working on several options in attack.
“The transfer market is not easy, it always depends on the financial possibilities of the club.
“I don’t want to talk about players of other clubs.”
He also added: “Of course, we can’t rely on one option to strengthen our attack. We must have several options.”
The Mirror reports that Bayern are considering their options after several bids for Mane were rejected by Liverpool.
The Reds want nearly £50million for the AFCON champion but Bayern’s highest bid was worth £30m with almost £8m in add-ons.
It was an offer Liverpool considered insulting and unless Bayern return with a bid that satisfies the Reds’ demands, Mane could stay put.
If, by some miracle, Mane stays at the club this summer, then Jurgen Klopp will have the best attacking options in the world by some distance.
He will be able to call on Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and potentially Takumi Minamino if he stays as well.
Add Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho into the mix as attacking midfielders as well and Klopp will have the most ridiculous depth up front.
