Liverpool news: Pundit shares 'unbelievable' Sadio Mane claim after Sky update
Liverpool could sell Sadio Mane for more than £35million as he is still an “unbelievable” player.
That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Reds’ recent transfer business.
On 17 June, Sky Sports reported Liverpool have agreed to sell Mane, 30, to Bayern Munich for a deal worth up to £35million.
Darwin Nunez, 22, signed for Liverpool on 14 June and will serve as Mane’s replacement.
“You have to keep changing it,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“Liverpool probably don’t want to lose Mane but at the end of the day, players move on.

“If he does sign for Bayern then they will get decent money for him, I hope they get what they deserve for him.
“Maybe they could get more but Liverpool won’t want to stand in his way.
“They already have the replacement lined up so that’s all sorted. Mane will be a miss but we don’t know how good Nunez is going to be.
“He might do just as well as Mane has. They are losing an unbelievable player in Mane, there is no getting away from that.
“But he wants to go and it sounds like they are getting good money for him so that’s all you can ask for.”
Mane is out of contract next summer, meaning Liverpool risk losing him on a free.
He joined the Reds from Southampton for a reported £34million in 2016 and has scored 120 goals for the club.
