Bayern Munich have reached an agreement with Liverpool over the proposed transfer of Sadio Mane, according to Paul Joyce of The Times. The Bundesliga champions will pay £25.7 million (€32m) straight up as the guaranteed part of the fee, with £5m to come in appearance-related bonuses, and further £2.6m in add-ons related to individual and team success the player achieves in a Bayern shirt. The total amount is therefore £35.1m, or €41m.

Liverpool had rejected two bids from Bayern for Mane, the second one in particular being described as ‘laughable’. Things appear to have changed with the arrival of a delegation of the Bavarians led by sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic today (Friday), and now the deal is agreed.
With numerous sources reporting that Mane has already agreed a three-year contract with Bayern, the medical ahead of the move is the only thing left before the transfer becomes official.
Mane was a big part of Liverpool’s success under Jurgen Klopp, and his departure after six years will surely be considered as the end of an era at Anfield.
