Sadio Mane is an important part of Liverpool at this time. But who would have thought that the story could have been different if he chose to move to Bayern Munich?
The Senegalese player moved to Anfield in 2016 with a price of 34 million pounds. Until now, he has pocketed a total of 106 appearances in the Premier League with a collection of 53 goals.
Although still relatively young, which is 27 years old, but the journey of Sadio Mane in the world of professional football has gone on for quite a long time. Before going to England, he had time to strengthen Metz and Red Bull Salzburg.
In the last club he succeeded in capturing the attention of Bayern Munich. If the move went smoothly, it is very likely that Sadio Mane's career story would not be as it is now.
Bayern Munchen's CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, acknowledged this. Strictly speaking, he said that his club was interested in bringing Sadio Mane. Unfortunately, the process of moving did not go well.
"We are interested in Mane, but for some reason that didn't work," Rummenigge told Bild. "Then he moved to Southampton and after that to Liverpool. Too bad, "he continued.
Mane is known as a player who has the speed and ability to fill the attacking wing. If successful, Die Bavarians shouldn't have to bother looking for replacements for Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.
As is known, the two aging players leave the Allianz Arena simultaneously in 2019. Robben decided to retire, while Ribery continued his career at Fiorentina.
Currently, Munchen still has a potential young figure in Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman. But since they are young, it takes time and patience to see the two of them becoming the new Robben and Ribery.
Later, Munich continues to be associated with Leroy Sane who is strengthening Manchester City. They are said to have approached him last summer, but the transfer failed to occur because an agreement was not reached.
Rummenigge also gets questions about this. But he chose not to say much because it was feared would have a negative impact on both parties.
"There will be problems if I talk about Sane," the 64-year-old added. "And above all, the price will not be cheaper. Both are not good, "he concluded.
