Sadio Mane is reportedly becoming increasingly isolated at Bayern Munich since the dressing room burst up with teammate Leroy Sane.
Sadio Mane has suffered a tough debut season at Baryen Munich, both on and off the field. After his 32 million euros transfer from Liverpool, the former Southampton striker was the subject of disagreement following a confrontation with Leroy Sane.
What happened to Sadio Mane?
After Bayern Munich’s 3-0 loss to Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League, Mane, and Sane got into an altercation in the locker room.
When the game was over, there was an animated discussion in the locker room.
The report claims that Mane punched Sane in the face because he took offense to the way Sane had been speaking to him.
The blow left a mark on Sane’s face, and the two had to be separated by teammates before normalcy could return to the dressing room.
Bayern Munich have since suspended Mane and issued a fine to the Senegalese who was blamed for the issue.
Reports claimed that Bayern Munich would let Sadio Mane (age 31) leave in the summer in exchange for Victor Osimhen (age 24). But it seems unlikely that Napoli could afford Mane’s salary.
Sadio Mane’s contract and salary with Bayern Munich;
Bayern Munich acquires Sadio Mane from Liverpool in a deal reportedly worth 35 million pounds including add-ons.
According to a German outlet, Mane will earn 17.07 million pounds per season, with a weekly salary of 354,000 per week.
Sadio Mane’s stats for Bayern Munich;
In 35 games played across all competitions for Bayern this season, Mane has scored 12 goals and dished out 5 assists.
What’s next for Sadio Mane?
Chelsea have registered interest in signing the AFCON winner from Bayern Munich this summer.
There are speculations that the Blues won’t have to compete with many teams for the services of the Senegalese star.
Mane’s current contract with the Bavarian giants still has more than two years to go. So, even though he’s 31, he might still cost a fortune.
That would force Mane to look for a potentially wealthier club to rescue him from the Bavaria, with the Premier League club being one obvious choice.
Although the forward has a history with Manchester United, the Reds may still hold preliminary talks with Mane because their frontline hasn’t looked as dominant this season.
Mane told reporters last summer that Jurgen Klopp wanted him to stay at Liverpool, adding fuel to rumors that the club would make a move to bring him back to Merseyside.

Mane moved to English club Southampton later that summer for a then-record fee of £11.8 million. In 2015, he scored a hat trick in 176 seconds to set a new Premier League record in a 6-1 victory over Aston Villa.
When Liverpool signed Mane in 2016, they reportedly paid £34 million for him, making him the most expensive African player ever.
He was instrumental in the team’s run to the UEFA Champions League Final in 2018 and again in 2019, where they ultimately prevailed in 2019.
In addition, he won the Premier League Golden Boot as a joint top scorer for the 2018–19 season. The 2019–20 Premier League championship was Liverpool’s first in 30 years, thanks in large part to Mane’s efforts.
He became only the third African player in Premier League history to score 100 goals in October 2021.
Mane placed fifth in the 2019 edition of The Best FIFA Men’s Player and fourth in the 2020 edition. He also placed fourth in the Ballon d’Or voting in both years.
