Chelsea’s Shock £30M Summer Raid for Liverpool Legend

There is a rumor circulating that Chelsea is planning to make a move for Sadio Mane from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window, coinciding with the potential appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as their new head coach.

Sources suggest that Pochettino has advised Chelsea’s owner, Todd Boehly, to pursue the former Liverpool player. has reported that discussions between Chelsea and Pochettino have been positive, but a formal agreement has not yet been reached.

A final decision on the appointment of the new head coach is expected from Boehly this week, with an announcement to follow soon after.

Sadio Mane, a former Liverpool player, has not had a successful first season with Bayern Munich, only managing to score 12 goals and provide five assists in 36 appearances.

Additionally, he had a recent disagreement with his teammate Leroy Sane following their loss to Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

This has led to speculation that Bayern is open to selling Mane. However, it is unclear whether Mane would consider joining a Premier League rival of his former club Liverpool. Despite this uncertainty, Mauricio Pochettino is said to have urged Chelsea to make a bid for the 31-year-old forward.

Pochettino is currently in discussions to become Chelsea’s next head coach, as the summer transfer window approaches. Reports suggest that Bayern may be willing to part ways with Mane for a fee of around £30 million.

When Pochettino becomes Chelsea’s head coach, he intends to strengthen the team with a new goalkeeper, central midfielder, and striker.

Mane’s versatility, having played as a No. 9 previously, could be a valuable asset for Chelsea next season if they can come to an agreement with him and Bayern Munich.

It is worth noting that Pochettino left Southampton just four months before Mane’s arrival in 2014. Now, there is a possibility that the two could finally work together at Stamford Bridge.
