Only Sadio Mane knows what the future holds for him, but one thing’s for sure and that is his 2023/24 season will not be spent at Bayern Munich.
Before a rumored altercation with Leroy Sane, which all but saw Bayern wash their hands of the player, the former Liverpool star didn’t seem to settle as well as he and the Bavarians had presumably wanted.
Mane has had a terrible season in the Bundesliga after joining Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino in one of the most fearsome front threes in Premier League history.
So much so that one could wonder how much he has slowed down.
However, he remains a top finisher, and teams may consider how to approach putting together a trade because of his skill set.
Whether that is in the Premier League or elsewhere is an unknown at this stage, but the player may have inadvertently given away his future destination whilst speak with Tory peer, Martin Callanan.
The two were snapped in Senegal and Mr. Callanan bumped into the player in their hotel.
When asked if he would be coming to Newcastle by the peer, Mane issued a very interesting, and brief, response.
Though any deal could be a long way off at this stage, the fact that he didn’t say no could suggest that there might be something in it.
Eddie Howe would surely be in the market for the 31-year-old if he thought there was a chance of getting him, and there’s plenty of time to get a deal done given that the transfer window has only just opened.
