Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich make Sadio Mane ‘decision’ as ex-Liverpool transfer target could replace Harry Kane



Liverpool rivals roundup: Bayern Munich are reportedly looking for a new club for Sadio Mane and Tottenham are reportedly looking to replace Harry Kane.

Liverpool boosted their chances of finishing in the Premier League’s top four with a victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, although that remains a difficult task.

The Reds are still unlikely to qualify for the Champions League with just five games remaining between them and Manchester United and Newcastle. Despite this harsh reality, Liverpool will be looking to finish in the top four every game until it is mathematically impossible for them, with at least a Europa League place likely assured.

Jurgen Klopp has introduced a new system in recent weeks, potentially with next season and signings in mind. However, which players the club will target or bring in during the summer transfer window remains a mystery.

A number of possible signings have been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent weeks. Chelsea’s Mason Mount, Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch and Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister are the players who have dominated the Reds rumour.

Here, Liverpool.com takes a look at other top teams in the Premier League and across Europe for an overview of news happening at other clubs.

Bayern Munich are looking for a buyer for Sadio Mané

Since Sadio Mané left Liverpool last summer to join FC Bayern Munich, not everything has gone as planned for the former Reds striker. The Senegal international has scored 12 goals in 35 appearances but that doesn’t say it all.

Just last month, Mane was involved in an alleged falling out with teammate Leroy Sane following Bayern’s defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League. If reports are to be believed, Mané could start moving this summer.

According to Sport BILD journalist Christian Falk, Bayern are actively “looking for a buyer” for Mane this summer. There have even been rumors that Chelsea may be making a move for the former Liverpool star.

“Meanwhile, FC Bayern are looking for a buyer for Sadio Mane,” wrote Falk for Caught Offside.

“An exchange with (Victor) Osimhen would be welcome, but it’s unrealistic. Mane would earn 12 million euros net in Monaco. Napoli won’t pay them.”

“He was noticed in Munich, however, because Chelsea are said to be interested in signing Mane. Bayern would be willing to negotiate if asked.”

Says Liverpool.com: Not many would have predicted that less than a year after signing one of Liverpool’s key players, Bayern Munich would consider dropping Sadio Mane from the club. Of course, that’s all speculation at this stage, but if the 31-year-old joins Liverpool’s arch-rivals Chelsea, Anfield fans wouldn’t like it.

Tottenham and Manchester United are ‘interested’ in the strikers.

Following Sunday’s loss to Liverpool, reports emerged that Tottenham Hotspur were looking to sign a new striker.

According to French outlet L’Equipe, Spurs are interested in signing Lille striker Jonathan David. It has also been reported that Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are also in the running for the Canada international.

Furthermore, it has also been suggested that Tottenham may be considering signing David to replace Harry Kane. The England international’s contract expires in 2024 and it is speculated that he could leave this summer.

David was on Liverpool’s option list when the Reds signed Diogo Jota from Wolves in 2020, alongside Ismaïla Sarr from Watford.

Liverpool.com says: Tottenham only signed a striker last summer when Richarlison secured a $75m (£60m/€68m) contract from Everton. Kane’s future will be a concern for the north London club, so it shouldn’t be a problem if they look at the striker’s alternatives if the star player leaves the club this summer or a year from now.


Referee wants points deductions after Jürgen Klopp incident in Liverpool victory over Spurs

The referee wants points deducted after Jürgen Klopp’s crash in Liverpool’s win against Spurs

As well as criticizing referee Paul Tierney, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said his celebration for fourth official John Brooks was misguided.

Following the latest controversial incident involving match officials at Anfield in recent weeks, a referee’s charity has again called for points deductions from Liverpool this season.

When Diogo Jota scored a late goal against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Jürgen Klopp was criticized for sprinting down the touchline. The Liverpool manager celebrated for the fourth official before referee Paul Tierney gave him a yellow card.

In his post-match interview, Klopp continued to criticize Tierney’s performance during the match, raising the question of whether the Great Manchester referee was simply loathing his team. “We have our history with Tierney,” Klopp said. “I really don’t know what he has against us. He said it’s okay, but that can’t be true. The way he looks at me, I don’t understand.

Martin Cassidy, CEO of Ref Support UK, has since spoken to The Telegraph about the incident:

The last time Klopp was indicted, the jury fined him £30,000 and handed him a one-match ban,” he said. “What happens now? Did they ban him again? A higher fine?”

“It was instinctive of him to do it. Clearly fines and match suspensions aren’t going to stop him. The only thing I can see to quickly fix this is to say, “We will introduce point deductions for regular offenders.”

“I don’t see a stronger deterrent,” added the self-proclaimed Reds supporter. “Imagine if Liverpool failed to qualify for the Champions League because they had points taken away from them for the behavior of their manager.
“Think of the message that would be shown around the world. I know a points deduction will seriously fix the situation. Instead, you’re firing a pea-shooter with these fines that mean nothing.

When asked specifically if he would like to see a points deduction for Sunday’s game, Cassidy said,

“I’d like to see a points deduction or at least watch it. They [the FA] refuse to do that. “I’m a Liverpool fan but we have to step back as an organization and I have to reflect the views of members on this. Only a fool would say that bad behavior is not copied.”

Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) have released a statement refuting the German’s claims about what Tierney said to Klopp when he showed the

Liverpool manager a yellow card.
“PGMOL is aware of Jürgen Klopp’s comments following his side’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur,” the statement read.

“Premier League match officials are recorded into all matches via a communication system and having fully reviewed referee Paul

Tierney’s audio from today’s match, we can confirm that he acted professionally, even when giving the warning to the Liverpool manager so that, we strongly refute any suggestions that Tierney’s actions were inappropriate.

At the start of the season, Jurgen Klopp was sent off for yelling in the face of an assistant referee during a match with Manchester City. On that occasion, referee Anthony Taylor produced a red card for the incident and received a one-match sideline ban.
