Guest of After Foot this Sunday evening, Sadio Mané’s adviser, Bacary Cissé, indicated that the new Bayern Munich striker has indeed been contacted by PSG this year. Lionel Messi would also have liked to attract the Senegalese international to FC Barcelona in 2021.
Sadio Mané is an assumed supporter of OM, but he was also a target of PSG. As his adviser Bacary Cissé told this Sunday evening at the microphone of After Foot on RMC, the Senegalese striker aroused the interest of the Parisian club this summer, before his signing at Bayern Munich.
Contacts between Leonardo and the Mané clan
“Yes, PSG did indeed ‘attack’ Sadio, said Cissé. Leonardo had several contacts with his German agent, they saw each other, they discussed the ins and outs of a possible transfer of Sadio to PSG, but it stopped there. Everyone knows that Leonardo was on an ejection seat, we had to wait…”
Bacary Cissé made another revelation: Sadio Mané could also have evolved with Lionel Messi … from last season. Since according to him, the Pulga had given his name when negotiating a possible extension to Barça. “Last year, it could also have done with FC Barcelona, continued the adviser. It was Lionel Messi who had imposed Sadio Mané in the deal when it was a question of him extending to Barça. He had given two names: Sadio Mané and an Argentine central defender”. Finally, the Catalan striker left his training club free of any contract, without having been able to see the 4th of the Ballon d’Or 2019 land.
“Sadio is among the best earners in the Bundesliga”
Finally, Cissé explained what prompted his player to commit to Bavaria. “Bayern is a club that needs no introduction, it has presented an enticing sporting project that no one can refuse, he breathes. After six years at Liverpool, it’s more enticing to go play at Bayern, we are facing a new sporting challenge. He won everything with Liverpool, every day he woke up seeing the same faces (…) And financially, everything is relative, but today yes, Sadio is one of the best Bundesliga salaries”.
