Senegalese and Liverpool forward Sadio Mane is reportedly set to earn £250,000 weekly upon the completion of his move to Bayern Munich. The Senegal international has agreed terms with the Bavarians ahead of a transfer worth £35m according to various reports in Europe.
A report by the Mirror suggests that the 30-year-old could become one of the highest earners in the Bundesliga, which will see him more than double his current wage.
The former Southampton man currently earns around £100,000 weekly at Liverpool, which is a far cry from what his talents deserve.
He was reportedly seeking a bumper rise to £400,000 during contract negotiations but the club seemingly refused to meet his demands.
Mane has just one year left on his deal with the Reds and the club elected to sell him this summer rather than lose him on a free transfer next year.
Contract negotiations stalled between the two parties, leading to speculation that he could be on his way out of Anfield after six years at the club.
He has agreed a deal with Bayern Munich and a deal with the German champions will soon be announced, pending the completion of medicals.
Sadio Mane joined Liverpool from Southampton for a fee of £34m, making him the most expensive African player in history at that point.
