​Sadio Mane could land the shirt number he's 'known' for at Bayern Munich following his move from Liverpool

​Mane is officially a Bayern player and was unveiled to the press on Wednesday following his £35.1 million transfer. 

He's yet to receive his shirt number, but Leroy Sane's father has said his son is prepared to give up the No.10 shirt.

The 26-year-old was given the No.10 shirt following his move from Manchester City.

However, if Mane wants the No.10 jersey, then the German winger appears willing to hand it over. 

The player's father, Souleymane Sane, told Radio Futurs Medias​ via @iMiaSanMia:​ "Sadio Mane is known with the number 10 at Liverpool and the national team - while at Bayern my son wears it.

"If Sadio wants the number 10, I'm certain there would be no problem for Leroy to give it to him."​


Mane wore the No.10 shirt at Liverpool from 2018 and dons the same number for Senegal. 

It seems he could continue his tradition of wearing the No.10 shirt at Bayern.

Speaking at his unveiling, Mane revealed that it took him just 'seconds' to make his decision to leave Liverpool for Bayern.

"I was really, really clear in my mind," he said. "When I was told about the interest from Bayern we discussed it.

"I think it wasn't even days, just seconds and I made my decision.

"I think it's the right decision, the right time and the right club. As a Bayern supporter or a Bayern player, you know already the project of the club.

"If you play for this club you need to know you're here to fight for all the trophies possible."
