Amid Sadio Mané transfer news, the dynamic winger of Bayern Munich has dismissed recent transfer rumors and affirmed his dedication to the German champions. Following a challenging season, Mané expressed his enthusiasm for overcoming obstacles and embracing the significant challenge presented by playing for FC Bayern.

Reflecting on the past season, Mané acknowledged the difficulties faced by both himself and the team. “It was a very complicated season, it happens,” told @2stvsenegal. “I'm on vacation with the family. It was a very complicated season, it happens. It wasn't a surprise, I expected things to be a bit complicated. It's normal. I love challenges, & Bayern is a big challenge. It's up to me to do everything to meet this challenge.”

Regarding a recent incident involving his teammate Leroy Sané, Mané brushed it off as something that can happen within a team dynamic. “We were able to solve this small problem,” he stated.

While acknowledging the value of resolving issues, Mané humorously noted that perhaps this particular incident was not the ideal way to do so, saying “This kind of things can happen. It happened. We were able to solve this small problem. Sometimes it's good to solve problems, but maybe not in this way. It's behind us now. We'll try to fight together to help the club achieve its goals next season”

Regarding Sadio Mané transfer news, the player emphasized his commitment to fighting alongside his teammates to help Bayern achieve its goals in the upcoming season. “Yes, God willing. If everything goes well, I'm going to return to Bayern,” he said.

It should be noted that a recent survey revealed that Mane was voted the biggest disappointment of the season by 252 Bundesliga players.

Howevere, Bayern legend Lothar Matthaus told sport bild about Sadio Mané transfer news  “I'm sure that five or six players from the current squad will no longer wear the Bayern shirt next season. [Yann] Sommer, [Alexander] Nübel, [Ryan] Gravenberch, [Marcel] Sabitzer and [Sadio] Mané are candidates for me.” 

He added: “Mané was an attractive transfer in terms of name, which unfortunately didn't work out. Two good games, a serious injury and then his character made a negative impression on a team-mate and his coach. Of course, that doesn't exactly increase the market value.”

Mané's PR Manager Gives Interview

The subject of potential transfers was addressed by Mané's PR manager, Bacary Cissé. In an interview with @2stvsenegal while speaking on behalf of the player, Cissé praised Mané's performance throughout the season, despite facing injury setbacks.

“I don't think Sadio had a bad season. The season started in August, he got injured in November and was out for 4 months. All in all, he had 12 goals & 6 assists despite not playing for 4 months – that's not nothing.” Cissé further argued that VAR disallowed 10 of Mané's goals, suggesting that his teammates struggled to adapt to his quick style of play.

“He also had 10 goals disallowed by VAR. That in part means that his teammates did not adapt to his game, which was very quick. I think if they had adapted to his game, Sadio would probably have scored 5 more goals. I'm optimistic because I know him well” Cissé remains confident in his client's potential.

Regarding transfer speculation, Cissé emphasized Mané's commitment to Bayern Munich. “I haven't heard about approaches (from Saudi Arabia). What's certain is that he stays at Bayern,” he stated. Reminding everyone that Mané signed a three-year contract, Cissé confirmed that the winger will remain with the club for the foreseeable future.

“He signed for 3 years. He spent one year and still has two. So yes, for now he stays at Bayern”
