Bayern Munich’s £35 million capture of Sadio Mane was initially seen as one of the bargain deals of the 2022 summer transfer window, as the forward rejected a contract extension at Liverpool to take on a new challenge at the Allianz Arena.

Mane earned a place among Europe’s elite attackers during his six-year stint at Anfield, scoring 120 goals in 269 games, becoming a Premier League and Champions League winner in the process.

Bayern hoped that the Reds hero would help fill the void left by Robert Lewandowski, who completed a long-anticipated move to Barcelona shortly after Mane’s arrival in Germany. The early signs were positive, with five goals netted in his first six appearances after slotting straight into Julian Nagelsmann’s starting XI.
