Both German and teammate of Sadio Mané in Liverpool (2016-2018 and 2021-2022), Loris Karius is well placed to judge the imminent transfer of the Senegalese international to Bayern Munich. And the goalkeeper who made two blunders in the 2018 Champions League final admits it: for him, such a move seemed completely implausible just a few weeks ago.
«It’s an incredible move for Bayern as Sadio Mané is one of Liverpool’s best players. When Bayern manage to sign someone like him, you can only congratulate him and the Bundesliga.“, Slipped the doorman, impressed, at the microphone of Sky Sports Germany. The contractual situation of Mané, whose lease expired in a year and who was therefore in a position of strength, partly explains how Bayern were able to achieve their ends.
Mané arrives on Tuesday!
Karius then introduced the Bavarians to their future signing. “He is a very reserved and down-to-earth person. He speaks a little German since his stay in Salzburg and I have always got on well with him. I think he will have no problem integrating in Germany“, concluded the goalkeeper.
After having spent his holidays in Senegal and then a few days in Mallorca, Mané is expected this Tuesday in Bavaria to satisfy his medical examination and he should be presented Wednesday at the Allianz Arena. The amount of his transfer is estimated at 32 million euros plus 9 million euros in possible bonuses.
