Liverpool reject 'joke' 2nd bid for Mane

World News

Liverpool have reportedly rejected a second bid from Bayern Munich for Sadio Mane, one that has been described as a "joke".

Last week, Bayern submitted an initial offer of £21 million (R404 million) potentially rising to £25 million (R481 million) for the Senegal international, but it was declined as it did not meet the Reds' valuation of the player.

A follow-up bid by the Bavarians is now said to have also been rebuffed by the hierarchy at Anfield, who deemed the latest proposal to be a "joke", according to the Daily Mirror.

Here are some potential incomings and outgoings at Liverpool in the coming weeks!

The new offer entails a £23.5 million (R452 million) transfer fee, plus additional add-ons of around £6.5 million (R135 million) to take the total close to £30 million (R577 million).

It is claimed the Liverpool board, led by newly in charge sporting director Julian Ward, laughed off this latest offer as some of the bonuses included in the deal would be close to impossible to achieve.

It is understood that Mane would have to win three Ballon d'Or awards, clinch a treble of Bundesliga titles, as well as European titles in order for the bonuses to be activated.

Ward and his executives have reportedly told the German outfit to not bother submitting any offers below their £40 million (R769 million) valuation of the Senegal talisman.

The Merseysiders are also said to be bemused by the fact that Julian Nagelsmann's side want at least €50 million (R823 million) for star striker Robert Lewandowski, who has publicly declared his desire to exit the Allianz Arena, and yet appear to want to low-ball the Reds in their pursuit of Mane.
