Sadio Mane claims he chose Bayern Munich because their strategy is more appealing to him.
The Liverpool attacker has officially undergone a physical, bringing his six-year stay at Anfield to an end.
However, with only 12 months left on his current deal, the 30-year-old made it apparent that he intended to go.
“When my agent first told me about Bayern’s interest, I was immediately excited.
“I saw myself there right away. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world and the team is always fighting for every title. So for me it was a very good idea and the right decision to come here.
“My agent told me that there were enquiries from other clubs. But I got the feeling right away when Bayern presented their plan to me. I found myself in Bayern’s plan more than anyone else,” Mane said.
Finally, a deal has been completed in which Bayern will pay an initial £27.1 million for the Senegalese superstar.
Although neither club has officially declared the move, he has been sighted in Bayern gear and performed his first interview with media in the nation where he will now work.
