Update from June 21, 2:47 p.m.: The medical check that Mané completed at noon was only the first part of two. In the afternoon, the Senegalese go straight on to check in at the hotel and have dinner afterwards.

Before Mané flew to Munich on Tuesday morning, he stayed in Mallorca, where he met his advisor Björn Bezemer. The Mané deal was also once threaded on the Balearic island. Only recently Hasan Salihamidzic and Robert Lewandowski met there. The FCB sports board wanted to talk to the world footballer again personally and possibly convince him to stay.

Update from June 21, 12:52 p.m.: For a good two hours, Mané will now be put through its paces in the truest sense of the word. FC Bayern’s new superstar will first kick hard and complete various sports medical tests before the contract is then likely to be signed.

Update from June 21, 12:36 p.m.: Mané will pass the medical check with almost a hundred percent certainty, as the attacker has developed a remarkable physique in the Premier League. Mané has not had to endure a longer injury break in his career so far.

Only in 2017 did he miss almost three months with a knee injury, six months later he had to take a break for almost four weeks due to a thigh injury. In October 2020 he was infected with the corona virus. Otherwise, the Senegalese only had minor injuries.

Update from June 21, 12:21 p.m.: Sadio Mané has arrived in Munich and is currently completing the first part of his medical check-up at the Barmherzige Brüder Hospital in Nymphenburg.

First report from June 21, 11:29 a.m.: Munich – It will be the Bundesliga’s mega transfer this summer! Sadio Mané leaves Liverpool FC and moves to FC Bayern.

Although the change is not yet official, the record champions have been in agreement with the 30-year-old for some time. Mané is to receive a three-year contract on Säbener Straße and rise to the top earner and earn around 20 million euros. Bayern also agree with the Reds. The fee will probably be 32 million plus possible bonus payments.
