Update: 10:40AM EST — Bayern Munich’s next bid is much higher

Per Sport1’s Kerry Hau, Bayern Munich’s next bid for Liverpool’s Sadio Mane is significantly higher than the initial proposal...but will it be high enough? We shall see:

According to SPORT1 information, all parties expect an agreement to be reached soon. Bayern plan to submit an improved offer. A fixed fee of 35 million euros with a further five million in possible bonus payments is currently being discussed.

That still might not be enough to get Mane from Liverpool, but it might start to get Jurgen Klopp’s club thinking about it a little more closely.

Update: 10:15AM EST — Bayern Munich expected to increase bid shortly

Bayern Munich is expected to submit another — more competitive — bid to Liverpool for Sadio Mane in the coming days:

Update: 7:10AM EST — Falk confirms offer

Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk confirmed the report that Bayern Munich made an offer to Liverpool for Sadio Mane, but it was ignored/rejected:

According to a report from journalist Paul Joyce of The Times, Bayern Munich submitted a lowball offer to Liverpool in hopes of procuring Sadio Mane, but the proposal was soundly rejected by Jurgen Klopp’s club.

Per Joyce, Bayern Munich offered just €25 million guaranteed, plus €4.65 million in add-ons for the speedy and talented Senegalese attacker:

There is little-to-no reason for anyone to think Bayern Munich would actually be able to procure Mane for such a paltry opening sum. This proposal, however, is just the opening bid in what should be a healthy exchange of ideas between the two historic clubs.

While the market is not exactly strong, Mane should command a more lucrative proposal than Bayern Munich’s opening bid.

At 30-years-old, Mane is still very valuable to Liverpool and Klopp would likely be very reluctant to sell him off without getting close to the figure he desires for the forward.
