Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp gave Sadio Mane apology as FSG handed €9m Liverpool boost PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Your Liverpool morning digest as Jurgen Klopp's previous comments about Sadio Mane, plus FSG have been handed a financial boost after Darwin Nunez deal
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Here is your Liverpool morning digest for Monday, June 20. Jurgen Klopp wanted to punch himself before apologising to Sadio Mane Sadio Mane’s Liverpool career is nearly at its end after the Reds agreed a €41m deal with Bayern Munich for the sale of the Senegalese earlier this week, with reports in Germany claiming he is set to undergo a medical on Tuesday. Kopites will inevitably wave off the forward with a heavy heart, having seen him score 120 goals during his six seasons on Merseyside to first fire Liverpool back into the Champions League for only the second time since 2009, before helping them win six trophies and be crowned champions of England, Europe and the world. Aged 30 with a year left on his contract, admittedly it was only a matter of time before the Reds had to consider a future without the forward. And while he might prove in Bavaria that there could have been more juice to squeeze from this illustrious partnership at Anfield, Liverpool bosses will at least be consoled by the fact they have enjoyed Mane’s peak years and are still selling him at a profit. With Roberto Firmino already on their books, the Senegal international was the second part of the Reds’ attacking puzzle when signed from Southampton in the summer of 2016. With Mohamed Salah joining the following year, Klopp put together the best front-line in Europe that conquered all before them. Mane was actually Klopp’s first marquee signing at Anfield as he sought to turn doubters into believers, brought in at the start of the German’s first full season at the club. And his desire to sign the Senegalese from the Saints as he looked to bolster his attack stemmed from a previous transfer misfire which left the Liverpool boss admitting he could have punched himself. Having tracked Mane’s progress since an impressive showing in the 2012 London Olympics, Klopp has first considered signing Mane when Borussia Dortmund manager and even held talks with the then RB Salzburg player over a possible move to the Westfalenstadion in 2014.

The Reds landed their first arrival of the summer after owners Fenway Sports Group sanctioned a potentially club record £85.4m deal for the Uruguayan striker from Portuguese side Benfica. Liverpool will pay a guaranteed £64m to the Primeira Liga side with the the remainder of the money to be paid when certain add-ons are triggered, such as personal appearances and team and individual successes. The potential price raised some eyebrows, especially given that Erling Haaland made the move to Manchester City for £51m after they met his release clause at Borussia Dortmund, although Haaland's City wages will far outstrip what Nunez will be receiving for his six-year contract at Anfield. With just one full season behind him at an elite European level, having joined Benfica from Spanish side Almeria in 2020, Nunez's exploits in both the Primeira Liga, where he netted 26 goals in 28 games last season, and the Champions League, where he scored six times in 10 games as Benfica reached the quarter finals before being beaten by Liverpool over two legs, with Nunez scoring in each game, the 22-year-old Uruguayan has been coveted by a clutch of top European sides. But have they overpaid or have they managed to pull off another transfer masterstroke in signing a player who could spearhead their charge for success in the coming seasons and see his value sky-rocket further.
