Sadio Mane snaps at reporter as Bayern Munich player closes in on move to new club

Sadio Mane, the former Liverpool player, was not interested in answering questions about his future from reporters.

After enjoying several successful years at Liverpool, Mane made the move to Bayern Munich to explore opportunities overseas.

However, his time at the Allianz Arena has been challenging, leading to speculation that he might consider another transfer just one year after joining.

In his most recent match for Bayern Munich, they secured a dominant 27-0 victory over FC Rottach-Egern, with Mane contributing one goal amidst a flurry of goals from players like Jamal Musiala, Mathys Tel, and Marcel Sabitzer, who each scored five times.

This is, however, just the tip of the iceberg.

Bayern’s coach Thomas Tuchel was quizzed about Mane’s future and form ahead of their pre-season and inferred his winger has much more to give.

Talking to SPORT1, he said: “[Mane] fell short of expectations. The competitive situation is extremely high, the starting position is not easy for him. The player knows that too, he knows my opinion and the opinion of the club.”

But given how he performed under Jugen Klopp at Liverpool, there is no doubt a spectacular footballer in there – it’s just a case of re-earthing that talent.

Sadio Mane refuses to talk to reporter after the game

The Senegalese star failed to translate his Liverpool form to the Bundesliga and struggled to hit similar heights in his inaugural season at Bayern Munich.

A clip was posted on Twitter by Maximilian Koch, an Abendzeitung reporter, showed the player in question posing for a photo with a fan as the journalist approached.

Unlike his warm-hearted gesture towards the supporter, he had a slightly different approach.

“You are killing me every day, and now you want me to talk to you guys? No point,” Mane said just moments before walking off, snubbing the reporter as he went.

Twenty-five appearances, seven goals and five assists later, and he has often been the subject of negative headlines, and he certainly made his feelings aware.

Unfortunately for him, his time at the 32-time domestic champions is most notable for his dressing room clash with teammate Leroy Sané.

After a less than impressive one-season stint in Munich, Mane could look elsewhere to revive his promising career, with the most likely destination at Al-Nassr.

The attractiveness of playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo is enough to prick the ears of players from every corner of the world and a big-money move could be on the horizon.

According toThe Athletic, Mane’s representatives have been in discussions with the Middle East-based outfit over a potential transfer.

Personal terms havereportedlybeen agreed with the club as their transfer embargo is set to be removed in due course and the transfer is being fuelled as Bayern are willing to let the Ballon d’Or runner-up move on to pastures new.

The Bundesliga club are looking to recoup £17m of the £35m, perSky Sports, they spent back in June 2022, but an agreement on a transfer fee is not expected to be a problem given Al-Nassr’s eye-watering huge wealth.

Until then, the wide man will likely be involved in Bayern’s next fixture against Manchester City as the two European heavyweights go toe-to-toe as they continue their respective pre-season campaigns.
