Sadio Mane’s salary after joining Bayern Munich from Liverpool has been revealed.
The former Southampton man currently earns around £100,000 weekly at Liverpool, which is a far cry from what his talents deserve.
He was reportedly seeking a bumper rise to £400,000 during contract negotiations but the club seemingly refused to meet his demands.
Mane has just one year left on his deal with the Reds and the club elected to sell him this summer rather than lose him on a free transfer next year.

Contract negotiations stalled between the two parties, leading to speculation that he could be on his way out of Anfield after six years at the club.
He has agreed a deal with Bayern Munich and a deal with the German champions will soon be announced, pending the completion of medicals.
Sadio Mane joined Liverpool from Southampton for a fee of £34m, making him the most expensive African player in history at that point.
The Bambali native has proven to be worth every penny, with his transfer considered a bargain considering his output for the club.
Mane has written his name into Anfield folklore as one of the greatest players in the club’s illustrious history. Together with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, he formed one of the greatest forward triumvarates the game has ever seen.
His record of 120 goals and 48 assists from 269 matches in all competitions for the Reds highlights his effectiveness. He played a key role in re-establishing Liverpool as an elite side.
