Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are ready to step up their offer on Sadio Mane as they prepare a £34million bid to tempt him away from Liverpool.
The 30-year-old has scored 120 goals in 269 appearances since joining Liverpool in 2016 but has shown interest that he wants to leave this summer.
Bundesliga champions will offer Mane a three-year deal, with the fee potentially rising to £34m with add-ons.
It is reported that Liverpool are expecting contact from the Bavarians but will likely demand a much more lucrative package than the one quoted to contemplate selling.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are unsure about flogging one of their prized assets but with just a year remaining on his contract, this summer may be their last chance to cash in on Mane.
Bayern are confident that a fee of less than £42m will be enough for Liverpool to sell.
Mane made it clear that he would not speak about his future until after Saturday’s Champions League final.
He said during the build-up to the game: “Come back to me on Saturday and I will give you the best answer you want to hear, for sure. It’s special.”
And following their disappointing 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid in Paris, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has revealed the forward is looking to leave Liverpool this summer.
