Bayern Munich sporting director confirms Sadio Mane signing
Time and time again, the transfer market has been compared to dominoes: the first major transaction concluded can trigger a chain of transfers. Bayern Munich may be about to topple the first domino.
On Friday, Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed the German giants would sign liverpool striker Sadio Mané. In a comment to SkySports GermanySalihamidzic answered a question about Mane with “Yes, he is coming”.

This could have consequences for Barcelona. Although Salihamidzic and much of the Bayern Munich management have argued that Polish striker Robert Lewandowski will see his contract with the club, an exit would surely be easier to swallow knowing that they have another elite striker in their ranks.
Barcelona have confirmed their interest in Lewandowski and the question remains whether Bayern will give in to the striker’s wishes.
Although Bayern want to put on a show of force against player power, they are not a club of unlimited resources and if Barcelona can make an offer that tips the scales in Bayern’s favor then a deal could be in sight. .
