Mane's camp denies client moved to Bayern for money

Mane's camp denies client moved to Bayern for money

A representative of Sadio Mane has rebuffed claims that the player moved to Bayern Munich for money reasons.

The Senegalese completed a move to Munich last week signing a three-year deal that could be worth up to £35million but his representative Cisse in an interview with TV5Monde claimed that the figures being circulated were not true.

"Those are false rumours. We didn't want to talk about that. A player of Sadio's caliber can't be earning the salary that people are speaking about. The numbers circulating are completely wrong.

"Sadio was already earning more than that when he joined Liverpool from Southampton. He extended his contract in 2018 and his salary was much higher than the numbers circulating in the media," he said.

Cisse was also asked if Mane can win the Ballon d'Or following a sterling year where he won the African Cup of Nations and a domestic double having taken the Premier League and the Champions League title races to the wire.

"Sadio does not want to talk too much about that. It's an individual award that players want to win. If it comes, so be it, but if it doesn't, Sadio will continue to play his football and go his way."
