Corresponding The timesGerman giants opened the tender with an offer of £21m plus £4m in clauses.

These add-ons are performance-based and include, for example, a Champions League win.

Last week Mane, who was a key player as the Reds lifted two trophies and reached the Champions League final this season, shocked reporters by hinting he was leaving Merseyside.

He said: “I respect the fans and the team, but 60-70 per cent of Senegalese want me to leave Liverpool?

“I’ll do what you want.”

Mane scored a hat-trick in Senegal’s 3-1 win on Saturday and, as expected, was asked about his future at club level.

He gave another cryptic clue, this time revealing that his favorite team as a kid wasn’t Bayern or Barcelona – the two clubs he’s linked with – but French side Marseille.

He said: “Bayern and Barca? Both teams are good. But I’m not a fan of those teams, you know. My favorite team is Marseille.”

FREE BETS AND SIGN UP OFFERS – THE BEST OFFERS FOR NEW CUSTOMERS

Mane also claimed that he was only “joking” when he claimed he wanted to leave.

He added: “I spoke while joking with a bit of humor yesterday and it was everywhere. I think we’ll stop there.

“Liverpool is a club I respect a lot. The fans adopted me from day one. As for the future, we’ll see.”

In six seasons at the club, Mane has scored 120 goals and helped the team become one of the best in Europe.

He has been named PFA Team of the Year three times and has won a Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Club World Cup and Champions League under Jurgen Klopp, losing two Champions League finals.

His desire to leave has sent shockwaves through the club, although it remains unclear why he is so keen to leave.

Meanwhile, veteran midfielder James Milner, 36, is about to sign a new deal to stay at Liverpool on significantly reduced wages.
