Liverpool have rejected a second bid worth a potential £30m from Bayern Munich for striker Sadio Mane.

According to Sky Sports, the bid is reportedly worth £23.5m up front with an additional £6.5m in add-ons that would only be paid if Bayern won three Champions Leagues and Mane lifted Ballon d’Or three times.

Liverpool believes the conditions of the deal are unrealistic and are unwilling to do business with the German side on those terms. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side value the Senegal international, who is about to enter the final year of his contract at Anfield, at around £43m. They have already rejected another offer from Bayern, for an initial £21m with another £4m in add-ons.

30-year-old Mane is looking to leave the club after spending six years at the club which he joined from Southampton. Last week, Mane said he would do “what the Senegalese people want” when asked about his future, and has recently joked that he could sign for Ligue 1 side Marseille.

Just before the Champions League final, Mane told Sky Sports News that he would decide his future after the defeat to Real Madrid, but teased fans ahead of last week’s AFCON qualifier against Benin.

He said: “Like everyone else, I’m on social media and I see the comments. Isn’t it between 60 to 70 percent of Senegalese that want me to leave Liverpool?

“I will do what they want. We will see soon! Don’t be in a hurry because we’ll see this together.”
