Sadio Mane leads Bayern Munich’s major transfer clear-out

Sadio Mane is the headline name on Bayern Munich‘s seven-man transfer list ahead of the summer window, according to reports in Germany.

Thomas Tuchel, who narrowly guided Bayern to an 11th consecutive Bundesliga title on the final day of the season, wants a major rebuild at the Allianz Arena after what has been an uncharacteristically turbulent campaign for the German giants.

Bayern’s wingers appear to be first on the chopping block, with Mane, Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry all reportedly heading for the exit door, according to German outlet Bild.

Right-back Bouna Sarr, goalkeeper Alexander Nubel and central midfielder Marcel Sabitzer, whose loan spell at Manchester United drew to a close at the end of the season, are also free to leave.

It’s understood Benjamin Pavard completes the seven-strong list after choosing not to extend his deal at Bayern.

The French international, who has attracted interest from Barcelona and Liverpool, is able to leave with immediate effect if a club offers Bayern just north of £25million (€30m).

Despite only signing Mane from Liverpool for £35m last summer, the Bundesliga giants are already prepared to listen to offers for the 31-year-old forward.

Mane only scored seven goals from 25 league appearances during his debut season and punched Sane in the face, wounding the German international’s lip, following Bayern’s Champions League exit to Manchester City in April.

The incident indicated the clear divide within Bayern Munich’s separated camp and came shortly after Tuchel’s arrival, with former head coach Julian Nagelsmann sacked by the club in the weeks leading up to the Champions League quarter-final.
