After a £35 million deal with Liverpool, Sadio Mane is likely to join Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich. However, a former player of the club has questioned the transfer.
During a hugely successful six-year stay at Anfield under manager Jurgen Klopp, Mane helped the club win six titles.
Despite his numerous achievements at Merseyside, the Senegal international is set to join Bayern Munich, a decision that former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has questioned.
“It’s not the best money you can get,” the former player told Sky Sports. “But there’s one year left and he wants to leave.” With Liverpool, he has won everything. I’m not sure why, but Bayern has offered him a huge contract, so we’ll go on.
“It’s a huge loss.” Since Luis Suarez, Mane and Mo Salah have been Liverpool’s top players.”
After spending £85 million on Benfica striker Darwin Nunez, Liverpool have already found Mane’s replacement.
Last season, the Uruguayan international scored 26 goals in 28 league games, giving him a total of 48 goals in all competitions during his 85-spell in Portugal.
Enrique expressed his admiration for Darwin Nunez, saying, “I truly admire Darwin Nunez.” “I’ve been following him since Almeria.” Let’s see if he can handle the high price tag and pressure of playing for Liverpool; if he can, he can be a top-notch player for us.
“The only reservations I have about Darwin are his age and transfer fee. I don’t think Liverpool will make too many changes. Some have suggested changing the system, but Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold will be content with a player like Darwin Nunez.”
Nunez is anticipated to play against Manchester United, Crystal Palace, RB Leipzig, and Strasbourg during Liverpool’s pre-season trip in July.
When the Reds begin off their domestic campaign against Fulham on August 6, he will get his first taste of Premier League action at Craven Cottage.
