Sadio Mané has completed his switch to the German Bundesliga after joining FC Bayern Munchen. Mané moved from Liverpool to join the German champions in a three-year deal. He has been unveiled this today in Munich.
The move would see him becoming the highest paid African player. His new contract worth 35.1 million pounds will end in 2025. The Senegalese striker is expected to receive an amount of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Pounds a week.
He would earn more than teammate Mohammed Salah who receives £220,000 a week.
At his unveiling, Mane revealed that; ‘I’m very happy to finally be with FC Bayern in Munich.
We had a lot of talks and I felt the great interest of this big club from the start. So, there was no doubt in my mind right from the start.
‘This is the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club.’
Sadio Mane has had his name in the media for some time after the season ended. He helped Liverpool place second in the Premiership which was won by Manchester City on the last day. His side also lost in the finals of the UEFA Champions League to Real Madrid.
