Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Borussia Dortmund have no interest in signing Liverpool winger Sadio Mane.
Daniel Nielson, a journalist from TV2 Danmark, reported on Thursday night that Dortmund were ‘watching’ the Champions League and Premier League-winning forward.
He claimed that a bid of €70m was going to be submitted ‘in the coming days’.
Mane has endured what he admits is the worst season of his career at Anfield.
Mane’s slump has been one of the reasons for Liverpool’s drop-off from a runaway lead to a top-four scrap.
Bundesliga journalist Chris Williams claimed that a Dortmund source has rubbished the speculation.
They would have to pay almost triple their current transfer record (the £27.45million they paid to re-sign Mats Hummels from Bayern Munich in 2019) for a deal to be possible.
And Romano replied after that statement emerged by noting that Williams was ‘correct as always‘.
Mane may have struggled this season, but Liverpool will surely regard it as a mere blip from a player who’s been operating at a world-class level for so long.
We shouldn’t forget that Eden Hazard, another left-winger, made a spectacular return to form in the 2016/17 season to help fire Chelsea to the title after looking a shadow of his former self in 15/16 (Transfermarkt).
It’s all about that pre-season reset, something Mane could benefit from with no international football for Senegal this summer.
