Bayern München have officially confirmed the signing of Senegalese attacker Sadio Mané from Liverpool.

30-year-old Mané has put pen to paper on a contract until 2025 with the German champions.

According to reports, Bayern have paid a guaranteed fee of €32 million plus a potential €9 million in add-ons to bring Mané to Germany.

“In Sadio Mané a top international star is coming to FC Bayern, who has left his mark on world football. We’re proud to have brought him to Munich. Sadio made it clear from the first minute in our talks that he now wanted to play for FC Bayern,” said Bayern board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic.

“Everyone knows his outstanding technical qualities as well as his incredible mentality. He will contribute a lot and help to lead our team, which has a great structure. The fact that he’s joining FC Bayern shows that our club and he have big aims. Sadio Mané fits perfectly with the football that FC Bayern play under Julian Nagelsmann.”

Mané commented:

“I’m really happy to finally be at FC Bayern in Munich. We spoke a lot and I felt big interest from this great club right from the beginning, so for me there were no doubts. It’s the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club, in Europe too. During my time in Salzburg I watched a lot of Bayern games – I really like this club!”

Liverpool put €41.2 million on the table to sign Mané from Southampton in 2016. He went on to score 120 goals and provide 48 assists in 269 games for ‘The Reds’.
