Mane published a picture of him in the match that was held in his village of Bambali in Senegal, where he appeared in a stadium full of mud.
Besides Mane, a number of Senegalese stars played in the match, such as former “Reds” star El Hadj Diouf, Newcastle United player Babis Cissé, and his two teammates in the national team, M’Baye Diane and Desire Sigbe.
The Liverpool striker commented on the photo he shared on “Instagram”, saying: “Back to my hometown with a festive match at Bambali Stadium, where it all began. Thank you very much to my brothers: Cisse, Diani and Sigby, and of course my idol Hajj Diouf.”
British press reports had revealed that Mane had been promised the possibility of moving to Bayern Munich, provided that the German club made a “satisfactory” offer to Liverpool.
The newspaper “Express” said that the Bavarian club made two offers to Liverpool to include Mane, and explained that the last offer was described by the management of the “Premier League” runner-up as funny.
It is believed that the second offer was worth 23.5 million pounds, in addition to 6.5 million pounds based on Mane’s performance in the “Alliance Arena” and his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or over the next three years.
And now Bayern is preparing to return to the negotiating table with a third offer, and there is confidence that it may be enough to finish the deal, while “Express” did not reveal its value.
It is believed that Mane has already reached an agreement with the Bayern management on the details of his 3-year contract, including his salary, but Liverpool’s agreement to the transfer remains.
The Senegalese star will likely replace Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who revealed his desire to leave Bayern Munich next summer.
After eight seasons in the Premier League with both Southampton and Liverpool, Mane feels that this may be his last chance for a new experience in one of Europe’s big five leagues.
Mane has been an integral part of Liverpool’s success in recent years, knowing that he moved to him in the summer of 2016 from Southampton for 34 million pounds.
