Sadio Mané is undisputed to the best offensive players in the world. The 29-year-old has been brilliant for years for the FC Liverpool and Home Title for titles. The FC Bayern will be annoyed, which could have taken the Senegalese two times under contract – and let both opportunities elapse.

Under certain circumstances, the winger could also have been able to play around the German championship and the DFB Cup, but a transfer to Bayern never came about.
For the first time, the paths of Senegalese and the German record champion in January 2014. Mané, at that time still in services of RB Salzburg, scored a goal in the friendly match against Bayern, at that time under Pep Guardiola, a hit.
Not only that, the Austrians granted the dealers a real teaching lesson, won 3-0 at the end. “Sadio has played outstanding and I was sure the Bayern will now report now. That was so obvious,” Mane’s consultant Björn looked back in conversation with the “picture”.
FC Bayern does not answer: “I really wondered”
The player agent’s phone remained silent, “I really wondered,” explained beman. Only half a year later, the 86-fold Senegalese national player moved to the Premier League for Southampton FC.
Even when Mané on the English south coast made attention to himself, there was contact with Munich. Something concrete “but also did not come about,” said the consultant.
After two missed opportunities in FC Bayern, FC Liverpool was confirmed the surcharge and committed the outer railway player for around 40 million euros. There, Mané finally matured the world-class player.
