Senegalese striker Sadio Mane became the highest-paid player of the German side Bayern Munich to fulfill his wish, which was one of the reasons for his departure from the Liverpool team, during this summer Mercato.
Mane left for Bayern Munich this summer to take on new challenges, according to his announced statements, but according to some reports in the British press, among the reasons was also the lack of a salary corresponding to his position at Liverpool.
According to these reports, Mane knew he would not be named Liverpool’s highest paid player, especially if the Egyptian Mohamed Salah extended his contract with the Reds.
And that seems to be the case as the Egyptian international is on a £350,000 weekly salary following a new deal to become the highest paid worker in Liverpool’s history.
However, Mane, with his departure to Bayern Munich, as well as the transfer of Polish star Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, became the highest paid player in the ranks of the Bavarian giant, equaling what Salah did this summer after the extension. his contract with Liverpool.
According to the German newspaper Bild, Mane has the highest salary at Bayern Munich at 22 million euros a year, followed by the Dutchman Mattias de Ligt, who joined the team this summer from Juventus, with 16 million euros a year.
Sadio Mane is expected to play his first official match for Bayern Munich on Friday night against Eintracht Frankfurt in the first round of the new German Bundesliga season.
