Bayern Munich may be considering selling Senegal winger Sadio Mane at the end of the season, according to reports. The 31-year-old joined Bayern from Liverpool last summer for £35 million, but he has not had the impact he was expected to have.
Mane has played in 35 games for Bayern Munich this season, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists. However, he has been criticized for not scoring enough goals and reportedly has had issues with his teammates.
The situation has led to rumors that Bayern may be willing to part with Mane for the right price. German newspaper Bild reports that a big enough offer would convince the club to let him go and rebuild their front line.
Interestingly, a source has suggested that Chelsea may be interested in bringing Mane back to England. Mane previously played for Southampton before joining Liverpool, where he became a fan favorite and a key player under Jurgen Klopp.

Mane’s time at Bayern has been marred by controversy as well. On April 13, he was suspended and fined by the club for allegedly punching teammate Leroy Sané in the dressing room after a 3-0 Champions League quarter-final loss to Manchester City.
It remains to be seen what will happen with Mane in the coming weeks and months. If he does become available, he is likely to attract interest from several top clubs. For now, though, he is focused on finishing the season strong with Bayern Munich and helping them win the Bundesliga title.
