Sadio Mane's move from Liverpool to Bayern Munich has been made official, ending his eight year spell in the Premier League.

Mane's move to Bayern has become inevitable in the past few weeks, with the forward non committal on his future at Anfield, ahead of the Champions League final.

With just one year left on his Liverpool contract, Mane has been allowed to leave the club in a deal worth £35.1 million, having previously held talks to extend his deal.

According to reports, the Senegal forward, who earlier this year won the African Cup of Nations, wanted to boost his wages from around £100,000-a-week to £400,000-a-week in order to stay on Merseyside.

The signings of Luis Diaz, last January, and Darwin Nunez, this summer, means that Jurgen Klopp's side won't be hit as hard by Mane's departure as they previously would have been.

However, the 30-year-old's time at the club has undoubtedly been brilliant, and he has helped bring success to Klopp's team with an invaluable contribution.

During his spell at the club, Mane won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, FIFA World Club Cup and UEFA Super Cup.

Including his spell at Southampton, the forward 111 times in the top tier of English football, putting him level with Dion Dublin in equal 23rd place in the history of the league.

The former Red Bull Salzburg forward joins a Bayern side who have just captured their 10th league title in-a-row, and show little sign of giving up their hold on the German league.

Julian Nagelsmann's side finished eight points above Borussia Dortmund in the previous campaign, and the signing of Mane will only boost them.

They could yet lose Robert Lewandowski this summer, with the Poland striker wanting to leave the club a year before his contract expires.
