Sadio Mané (born 10 April 1992) is a Senegalese international footballer who plays as a forward for Liverpool.

Liverpool career

Since the departure of Luis Suarez and the injuries to Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool had failed to score the number of goals that was expected of them, with their top scorer in each of those seasons having just thirteen goals. This led Jurgen Klopp to look for more attacking options in the summer of 2016. Originally, it looked as if Mario Götze was to be the club's main attacking signing for the summer, but when a deal had appeared to have been on the cards, the German made clear his desire to instead remain at Bayern Munich.

Then, rumours started to develop linking Southampton's Sadio Mané to the club, and it was reported that a bid of around £30,000,000 had been made for the Senegalese attacker. On 27 June 2016, Mané was photographed coming out of a hospital in Liverpool, having had his medical.

On 28 June 2016, it was confirmed that Mané had signed for the club for a reported fee of £34,000,000, potentially rising to £36,000,000, although Merseyside correspondents put the deal at £30,000,000. As a result, Mané joined the club as one of their three most expensive signings ever. Mané became the fifth player to move from Southampton to Liverpool in just two years, following Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, and Nathaniel Clyne to Anfield. On the same day, it was confirmed that Mané was to wear the number 19 shirt for the 2016-17 season.
