Sadio Mane

I heard it was £425 million, a pair of tracksuit bottoms, and a Degan signed shirt.

Equivalent to £25m net. Not bad.

Southampton striker Sadio Mane will have a medical at Liverpool on Monday after the clubs agreed a transfer fee of £34m, BBC Radio Solent understands.

 

 

The fee could rise to £36m, making the deal one of Liverpool's most expensive, rivalling £32.5m for Christian Benteke and £35m for Andy Carroll.

 

 

Manager Jurgen Klopp wants to boost his attacking options and made Mane a prime transfer target this summer.

It had been thought the Saints wanted closer to £40m for the Senegalese.

 

 

The deal is expected to be confirmed on Tuesday.

 

 

Klopp was impressed by Mane when he

scored twice as Southampton came from 2-0 down to beat Liverpool 3-2 at St Mary's on 20 March.

Alongside England striker Daniel Sturridge and Belgium youngster Divock Origi, Mane, who scored 11 goals in 37 Premier League games last season, would add pace and a goalscoring threat.

 

Liverpool may seek to recoup most of the money they spend on the Mane by selling fellow striker Benteke, who has struggled since his move from Aston Villa in 2015.

 

Mane is set to tread a well-worn path between Southampton and Liverpool.

 

Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Rickie Lambert and Nathaniel Clyne have all moved to Anfield since the summer of 2014.

It would also give Saints a handsome profit on a player they bought from Salzburg for £10m two years ago.

They have already sold midfielder Victor Wanyama to Tottenham for £11m.

 

Southampton are still without a manager following the departure of Ronald Koeman to Everton but have been linked with former Nice boss Claude Puel.

 

Liverpool also want to sign Leicester City's 19-year-old left-back Ben Chilwell, who did not play in the Foxes' title-winning campaign.

 

This move is currently on hold because Liverpool are unwilling to meet Leicester's £10m asking price for the youngster who had a spell on loan at Huddersfield Town last season.

It doesn't matter who it's from. £34m is is about £14m too much.

 

While people try and justify it by comparing it with the sterling/Benteke deals, they're among the worst deals in football history.

 

I hope he does well, obviously. But we've been robbed. Again.

 

Our scouts need sacked.

His two goals against us at their place last season is all the scouting we did......he was nailed on from the moment he got the 2nd

This is the worst deal the club has done, Carroll had an outstanding attribute with his ability in the air and Benteke had a 1 in 2 goal record.Mane is a poor striker who can do a job out wide, he's a very poor mans Bellamy and is very inconsistent.

 

If we are willing to have someone out wide who is shit for large parts of the season we should have let Ibe have a run of games to develop.I was laughing when Manu were linked with him last season and I hoped they would sign him as he is not good enough for a top club, embarrassing deal and we should have stumped up for Teixera.

 

He's a lot more mobile than benteke or carroll and therefore is already a better fit for us.

We should be after that Pelle lad. Who does he play for?

Having a bleak at their forums to see what they thought of mane leaving.

 

They all seemed happy to get rid of Pelle cause theyve got Long and Austin. Strange bunch.

They were glad when walcott, oxlaide chamberlain, lovren and lallana left. I gather the only one they regretted leaving was Clyne.
