Bayern Munich want Liverpool's Mane

Mane's contract at Liverpool runs out in the summer of 2023; negotations over a new deal have been difficult; Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic met Mane's agent over the week; Salihamidzic said the club "have creative ideas" when asked about the Bayern's transfer plans.

Bayern Munich are interested in signing Liverpool forward Sadio Mane this summer, according to Sky Germany.

While there has been no official dialogue between the two clubs, Bayern's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic met the 30-year-old's agent over the weekend.

Mane is under contract until 2023, but talks over a possible new deal have not yet been forthcoming, with Liverpool said to be focussing on tying up negotiations with Mohamed Salah - whose current terms also expire in 2023.

This season, the Senegal international has made 47 appearances for Jurgen Klopp's team, scoring 21 goals.

Mane had been linked with a transfer away from Anfield before signing new terms on Merseyside in November 2019, with rumours over his Liverpool future attracting interest from Real Madrid.

After the 2-2 draw against Stuttgart on Sunday evening, Salihamidzic said when asked whether there would be a big-name transfer at Bayern: "Let yourself be surprised.

"We have to see what is possible and what is not. We have creative ideas."

Liverpool, who currently sit three points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, have declined to comment.

They visit Aston Villa on Tuesday,aiming to close the gap on Pep Guardiola's side before contesting the FA Cup final with Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday.
