In principle, the traspaso of Mané rondaría the 50 'kilos', with the cual the finances of the Liverpool will not suffer the hit of the arrival of Núñez. The Bayern is one of the most interested clubs in the '10' of the 'reds' and already presented a pair of offers by him, which were desestimadas immediately in Anfiel Road by his low cost. The Bavarians offered first 30 and afterwards 35 million euros, a figure that is distant in at least 15 'kilos' of the pretences of the Liverpool.
Regarding Darwin Núñez, Klopp does with the services of one of the most promising forwards of the moment. The one of Artigas had a spectacular season with the 'Eagles' in the 2021-22, converting 34 goals in 41 parties, 6 of them in the Champions. In the eliminatory of quarter-finals in front of his new team, the 'charrúa' annotated two goals (one in Lisbon, one in Anfield) and was the big figure of a Bnefica that was able to take out a 3-3 of Merseyside (4-6 global).
Likewise, the arrival of the Uruguayan represents a relief no only in front of the imminent exit of Mané, but also by the doubts that generates the continuity of Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian also culminates agreement in June of 2023 and, for the moment, his renewal follows stagnated, with which the possibility to lose to his two maxima goleadores follows very latent for a Liverpool that in the 2022-23 will look for to litigate again by all the titles to the end of season.
The Barça and Lewandowski smile
All these movements prepare the terrain for the arrival of Robert Lewandowski to Catalonia. Further of the insistence of the Bayern in retaining to the Pole, the directive knows that the Pole does not want to renew and will not have more remedy that traspasarle and invest the amount of his traspaso in the arrival of Sadio Mané or another forward, which could be Gabriel Jesús. The Brazilian will go out of the Manchester City this summer and his cost round also the 50 'kilos'.
Of this way, to the Barça goes him clearing the way for fichar to the '9' that Xavi Hernández needs. It is question of days so that the present directive a formal offer by the Pole, once attain to put his finances to the day. By his part, Robert will await calm by the offer culé and expects that the Bavarian directive fulfil his called to 'truce' in the next two weeks and facilitate his exit after eight years like leading centre muniqués. The 'dance' of forwards recently begins in this market of summer.
