Former Liverpool player, Sadio Mane, has said he decided to join Bayern Munich because of the interest the German Bundesliga side showed in him.
Mane joined the German side with just 12 months left on his contract with Liverpool. He passed his medical with the club on Tuesday.
However, both clubs are yet to announce the conclusion of the deal despite Mane already in Germany granting press interviews and wearing Bayern Munich’s gear.
“When my agent first told me about Bayern’s interest, I was immediately excited.
“I saw myself there right away. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world and the team is always fighting for every title. So for me it was a very good idea and the right decision to come here.
“My agent told me that there were enquiries from other clubs. But I got the feeling right away when Bayern presented their plan to me. I found myself in Bayern’s plan more than anyone else,” Mane told BILD.
