Sadio Mane expresses his excitement about imminent transfer to Bayern

Sadio Mane sat down with German publication Bild for an interview.

Sadio Mane has expressed his excitement about his summer transfer to Bayern Munich from Liverpool. He claimed that he was ‘hooked’ by the Bundesliga giants’ interest in him.

The Senegal international is on the verge of completing a transfer worth £35m including add-ons, and he was in Munich on Tuesday to undergo a medical before being pictured wearing a Bayern training top.

Mane signalled that he was open to leaving Liverpool at the end of the 2021/22 season and 90min reports he even waived some fees in order to seal a switch to the Allianz Arena, with a deal agreed late last week.

Sadio Mane sat down with German publication Bild for an interview ahead of completing the transfer. He said: “I’ve said many times, my life has always been a challenge,” he said. “When my advisor first told me about Bayern Munich’s interest, I was hooked. I saw myself there right away.

“For me it was the right club at the right time. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world and the team is always fighting for every title. So for me it was a very good idea and the right decision to come here.”

He added: “My agent told me that there were also requests from other clubs. That’s part of the deal. But I got the feeling right away when Bayern presented the plan to me. I found myself in Bayern’s plan more than anyone else.”
