XXL salary

The Senegalese African champion will discover his fourth championship with Germany after France, Austria and England.

But this is the first time that the native of Bambali has landed in a country, escorted by an immense enthusiasm, proportional to the expectation he arouses among Bavarian supporters and followers of the Bundesliga.

In any case, the club, chaired by Oliver Kahn, did not hesitate to break the bank to offer Sadio Mané the biggest salary in the club and in the German championship.

The player, who went through FC Metz, will indeed receive 25 million euros net per year for three years according to the contract he signed less than a week ago.

In Liverpool, Mané was in the top 5 of the best salaries and should have settled on the podium if he had

decided to extend his contract


The former Red even benefited from a nice signing bonus of 5 million euros.

To this will be added various bonuses depending on the club's ranking at the end of the season, the number of goals scored by Mané and his rank in the Ballon d'Or France football ranking.
