Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Sadio Mane from Liverpool for a reported £35million.
The Senegalese forward enjoyed a successful campaign last season, winning the FA Cup and Carabao Cup while also triumphing with his homeland in the Africa Cup of Nations.
On joining the Bundesliga giants, Mane said: “I’m really happy to finally be at Bayern.
“We spoke a lot and I felt big interest from this great club right from the beginning, so for me there were no doubts.
“It’s the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club, in Europe too. During my time in Salzburg I watched a lot of Bayern games — I really like this club!”
Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn added: “We are delighted that we’ve been able to recruit Sadio Mane for Bayern.
“With his outstanding performances and his great successes at the highest international level over many years, there are very few players like him in the world.
“We’re sure that Sadio will delight our fans in the coming years with his spectacular style of play.
“He’s ambitious and eager to win more titles. This package is very strong. With players like him at Bayern, all the biggest goals are possible.”
Mane has excelled since his move to the Reds from Southampton in 2016, having bagged 120 goals for the Anfield club.
Picking up six trophies during his six-year spell on Merseyside, the 30-year-old has been instrumental in Jurgen Klopp’s quest for titles.
Entering the final year of his contract, the Premier League runners-up have allowed their No10 to exit with attackers Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez already brought in to compensate for the loss of their star man this summer.
Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern will be hoping that his addition will help them return to winning ways on Europe’s elite stage and secure a sensational 11th consecutive domestic title.
