Sadio Mane's agent has reportedly met with Bayern Munich chiefs to discuss a summer transfer as the Liverpool ace has been left increasingly annoyed at a lack of development with his current contract.
Mane, 30, has earned a reputation as one of the best wide players on the planet since making a £34m move to Merseyside in 2016. A key component of the Reds' successful Premier League and Champions League-winning sides, the Senegal international last penned a contract extension in 2018, which is set to expire next summer.
While Mane was keen to commit his future to the club, the wing wizard has grown increasingly frustrated at a lack of communication about a new deal with Liverpool prioritising the renewal of star man Mohammed Salah.
Now though the three-time Premier League Player of the Month looks to be open to offers elsewhere. Sky Sports in Germany allege that Mane's agent met with Bayern's Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic over the weekend to listen to a proposal from the Bundesliga champions.
The report states Bayern are eager to make a "statement signing" in the transfer window with Mane being lined up as a potential target. The Bavarian giants are waiting on the future of striking sensation Robert Lewandowski with rumours of a summer switch to Barcelona.

And if the Senegalese's head is swayed, Liverpool could be forced into flogging him for a cut-price fee. Mane has less than 12 months remaining on his current contract and would be available on a Bosman transfer should he opt to see out his final year at Anfield.
The Reds hierarchy are still yet to give into Salah's £400k-a-week demands with the Egyptian King also seeing his deal expire in 2023. Last month Salah had seemingly made a transfer u-switch, committing his future to Anfield – but with no progress made since April time is running out for an agreement to be reached.
