Liverpool are ready to sell Sadio Mane this summer, but won’t accept less than their valuation of the 30-year-old.
That’s according to The Athletic this morning. They claim that ‘senior sources’ at Liverpool have dismissed the suggestion that Bayern Munich could secure Mane’s signing for around £25.5m.
Instead, The Reds reportedly value their number 10 at £42.5m. It’s claimed that Liverpool would rather lose Mane for nothing in a years time than sell him under-value.
Liverpool would also reportedly have needed to ensure a ‘suitable replacement’ was brought it prior to letting the Senegal international leave.
It’s the news that all Liverpool fans were dreading off the back of a tumultuous week for the club.
Having narrowly missed out on the Premier League title the previous week, Liverpool suffered heartbreak in Paris against Real Madrid.
After 269 games, 120 goals and six major trophies, it really does look like Sadio Mane will be on his way this summer.
For many, he has been the symbol of the Jurgen Klopp era – the man who kickstarted it all. As Jamie Carragher pointed out in The Telegraph, he is world-class. His departure will be met with disappointment and sadness across the fanbase.
