Bayern make third offer for Liverpool's Mane

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are set to make a third offer worth €40 million ($41.8 million) for Liverpool forward Sadio Mane, Germany's Bild paper said on Tuesday.

Bild said that the Munich leadership has approved the offer made up of a transfer fee of €35 million plus up to €5 million in add-ons.

The report also said that the Senegal star has agreed personal terms of a three-year contract with the German top side.

Mane, 30, came to Liverpool in 2016 and Anfield his contract is until 2023.

Bayern reportedly have had two lower offers for Mane rejected by Liverpool.

The Germans want Mane because the future of their winger Serge Gnabry and that of star striker Robert Lewandowski is unclear. Both are contracted until 2023 and Lewandowski has said he wants to leave in summer with Bayern however saying they won't allow that.

Bayern had late Monday announced the signing of Dutch midfield talent Ryan Gravenberch on a five-year contract. The 20-year-old is their second summer transfer and like defender Noussair Mazraoui arrives from Ajax Amsterdam.

While Mazraouni joins Munich on a free transfer, the fee for Gravenberch, whose Ajax contract was until 2023, was named at €18.5 million by Ajax, plus up to €5.5 million in add-ons and Ajax getting 7.5% of the sum Bayern would generate should they sell the Dutch international.

"Ryan Gravenberch is a young, highly interesting player who lots of Europe's top clubs would've liked to have signed," Bayern CEO Oliver Kan said., naming players like Gravenberch "important for Bayern's future path."

Gravenberch will be competing in the Bayern midfield against the likes of Germany players Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka but he appears ready for the challenge.

"When the offer came from FC Bayern, I didn't have to think about it for long. FC Bayern are one of the biggest clubs around; players from all over the world want to play for this club," he said.
