Sadio becomes the £30m Liverpool Mane

Forward Sadio Mane has become Liverpool’s third most expensive signing after the club confirmed he had completed his move from Southampton.

We understand the Senegal international has signed a five-year contract after a £30million deal was finalised.

That puts the 24-year-old behind only Andy Carroll (£35million) and Christian Benteke (£32.5m) in terms of the club’s record signings, though Sane could eventually cost a club-record fee.

The Senegal international, who scored 25 goals in 75 appearances for the Saints, is the fourth signing by manager Jurgen Klopp, who has already brought in centre-back Joel Matip, midfielder Marko Grujic and goalkeeper Loris Karius.

Mane will wear the number 19 shirt.

There has been some dispute between the clubs over Mane’s fee with Southampton saying privately it is £34m rising to £36m with add-ons but sources at Anfield have rejected those claims.


Liverpool’s players who have not been involved in the European Championships are due to return for pre-season training on Saturday with their first friendly the following Friday at neighbours Tranmere.
