Senegal striker Sadio Mane said his move to Bayern Munich from Liverpool is the right decision at the right time because the German champions have the best plan for him.
Reports stated that Bayern, who won their tenth consecutive Bundesliga title last season to extend their record, agreed to a deal worth about 40 million euros, including additions to obtain the services of the 30-year-old, who had a year left on his contract with Liverpool. .
Mane arrived in Munich on Tuesday for a medical examination and was seen wearing a Bayern shirt when he left the medical center.
“Challenges are part of my life,” Mane told Bild newspaper. “When my agent first informed me of Bayern’s interest, I was so excited, I didn’t think twice about it. For me I think Bayern is the right club at the right time, it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world to compete.” Always over all titles, I saw myself in Bayern’s plan more than any other club.”
Mane will leave Anfield after playing 269 games, scoring 120 goals in all competitions and helping Liverpool win the Champions League in the 2018-2019 season and the Premier League a season later.
The striker is set to become Bayern’s third deal before the start of the new season, after the arrival of Ajax Amsterdam duo Ryan Grafenberg and Nassir Mazraoui.
Bayern won its tenth consecutive title in the German League, but failed to overcome the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Mane was one of Liverpool’s most prominent players last season, scoring 23 goals, to make Jurgen Klopp’s team double the local cup and compete for the Premier League title until the last minute, before Manchester City settled it.
