Sadio Mane 'leaning towards Bayern Munich transfer and Liverpool exit with Champions League final set to be farewell'

SADIO MANE is leaning towards a move to Bayern Munich next season, German media say.

The forward's Liverpool contract expires next summer, leading to speculation over his future.

German champions Bayern have registered an interest as they fight to keep star striker Robert Lewandowski, 33.

And according to Bild, Mane, 30, is leaning towards a move to the Bundesliga after six years with Liverpool.

It is stated the Senegal international fancies a new challenge and could say his goodbyes after the Champions League final.

Liverpool play Real Madrid on Saturday in Paris, a rematch of their defeat to the Spaniards in 2018.
