FC Bayern Munich are understood to have made an agreement on personal terms with Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane on a three year deal.
Reports from Fabrizio Romano suggest the German giants are edging ever closer to signing the Senegalese forward, who has been their top priority over the last few weeks.
The Italian journalist also indicated that Bayern’s talks with Mané are entering the final stages, with a new bid expected to be launched in the very near future.
The six-time European champions are reportedly ready to offer Liverpool a fixed fee of €35 million, plus €5 million in potential add ons, having already seen two bids rejected in the last few weeks.

The Bavarian’s second offer for Mané’s also included add-ons, but Liverpool were said to have laughed off the bid, which contained some outrageous clauses, including one which required Mané to win the Ballon d’Or three years in a row!
Jurgen Klopp will not stand in the way of Mané’s departure, but it will be tough for the German as Sadio was one of the first signings he made for Liverpool.
The recent arrival of Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez will likely ease the blow of Mané’s imminent exit for many fans.
However, the ever present Senegalese forward will undoubtedly be missed as we head into a new Premier League season, especially at a time where strength in depth seems to be the recipe for success.
On Bayern’s end, the prolific goalscorer Robert Lewandwoski has recently confirmed his intention to leave the German champions and find a new challenge in his footballing career, with Chelsea and Barcelona being possible destinations.
Alongside this, winger Serge Gnabry has reportedly also shown desire to leave Germany. All signs are pointing to the inevitable arrival of the Liverpool talisman in Munich to replace the outgoing superstars.
