Liverpool and Southampton fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are not on the best terms today after Sadio Mane’s £34m move to Merseyside looks all but done.
Pictures have emerged on Twitter of the Senegal international leaving hospital after having his medical before becoming the latest Saints player to make the move to Anfield, following in the footsteps of Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren.

It was reported by the BBC on Monday morning that a £34m fee had been agreed between the two clubs and that the deal was set to go ahead this week.
Mane has been linked with a move away from the South Coast for over a season now, but the major turning point for Liverpool may well have been the Senegalese international’s performance when he scored two to overturn Liverpool’s 2-0 lead and secure a win for Saints earlier this year.
Saints fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking forward to happy hour now to drown their sorrows but one thing that will help is the hefty fee that Liverpool have paid for the winger, who at one point last season went five months without a goal.
