Senegal international Sadio Mane is set to become Africa’s highest-paid footballer, overtaking Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah and Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez.
The 30-year-old Mane is joining Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich next summer after a £31.5 million buyout clause was activated.
Mane who is traveling to Germany tomorrow for medical tests, has agreed on joining Bayern with his new contract running for 3 years.
According to Sportbible, Mane is expected to be pocketing £250 000 a week at Bayern, a figure which doubles his salary at Liverpool. At Liverpool, Mane was reportedly pocketing £100k.
Bayern Munich had to go for Sadio Mane considering that their prolific striker Robert Lewandowski is set to leave for Barcelona.
