Mané became one of the leading names in the market after making the decision to leave Liverpool to take on a new challenge at Bayern Munich. The news hit the Liverpool fans hard due to the fact that the Senegalese became one of the club's top stars since his arrival in 2016.

After news broke of his departure, the English press set out to find out what were the real reasons that led him to make this decision. Jurgen Klopp seemed to have found his 'dream trident' with Mané, Salah and Díaz, but it vanished in a matter of months.

When the Colombian striker Luis Diaz arrived in February, the German coach removed Sadio from the wing and placed him as a center forward. The Colombian man played on the left, while Salah played on the right. Mané did not shine that new position and everything indicates that he was not entirely comfortable with the change.

Furthermore, Mundo Deportivo explains that Mané was looking for more recognition. Salah is the main idol of the current Liverpool squad and, beyond the respect they have for each other, the winger believed that he was not valued as he should be.

What is Mané looking for in Bayern?

An important factor would be the departure of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern. Sadio thinks that he will be able to take a leading role in the German juggernaut and he aims to become the main name of the offense.
