FC Bayern - Change to Cristiano Ronaldo: "Sadio Mané is part of the team"

Bayern Munich CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen did not want to confirm reports that star player Sadio Mane was about to leave for Saudi Arabia – but did not deny it either. “Sadio is part of the team. As our coach said, we’re starting with a team that may not be the team on September 1 in this constellation,” said Dreesen.

He feels it is “wrong to comment on individual players, so I won’t do it,” he added. The transfer period ends on August 31, the record champions would like to sell Mane again immediately after a messed-up season despite a contract until 2025.

L’Equipe had reported that Mane had already reached an agreement with Saudi club Al-Nassr, where Cristiano Ronaldo is under contract. The fee is open. Bayern paid 31 million euros plus bonuses to Liverpool FC last summer.

Coach Thomas Tuchel apparently no longer plans with the Senegalese. “He fell short of expectations. The competitive situation is extremely high for him with Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry, so we have a constellation that makes it very difficult for Sadio,” said Tuchel just a week ago: “The player knows that too, he knows my opinion and the opinion of the club.”

Despite seven Bundesliga goals and five assists, Mane was not able to perform as hoped in Munich. In nine Champions League games he scored three goals and one assist. Tuchel called Manes’ season “unsatisfactory”.
