Report: Bayern Munich have asked about Richarlison, likely their alternative to Sadio Mané

Bayern Munich have an alternative target to Sadio Mané, according to reports. They’ve made an inquiry to Everton.

This comes from Spox. They claim that Bayern Munich have eyes on Richarlison and have made an inquiry ahead of the transfer window.

The Brazilian would be their replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who is widely expected to join Barcelona this summer. Bayern could apparently pry Richarlison away from Everton for around £42m – if the’s their go-to.

But for us, this sounds as though he’s just an alternative. Reports out of Germany in recent weeks highlight their interest in Sadio Mané. Sky Germany are one of those making the claim, with the Liverpool man potentially up for sale.

Mané’s contract expires in 2023, meaning Liverpool may feel a need to sell this summer. Fail to do so and the Senegal star could leave for free in a year’s time.

Bayern Munich target Sadio Mané

We find it hard to believe that Bayern would choose Richarlison over Mané right now. The latter is in the form of his life. The former just scored a goal to help his side avoid relegation.

Unless, of course, Mané isn’t as available as Bayern hoped and that’s the positive take for Liverpool fans here. Asking about Richarlison suggests they’re not particularly confident of landing who we presume to be their preferred target.

However, there’s also talk that Paris Saint-Germain could be forcing Mané’s wage demands very high. It’s possible that it’s less of a case of Mané not being available and more than Bayern can’t afford him. We’ll just hope that’s not the case.

Still, the fewer teams interested in Mané, the better. He’s playing incredibly well right now and it would feel like a disaster if he were to leave Anfield this summer. To Bayern or otherwise.
