Spartak Moscow brutally troll Bayern Munich’s offer for Sadio Mane that Liverpool rejected over unrealistic add-ons… as they fake a bid that includes £8.5m if the German giants win Eurovision and £13m if Manchester United lift a trophy!
- Bayern Munich are said to offered a ridiculous proposition for Sadio Mane
- Offer would only reach £30m if Bayern Munich won three Champions Leagues in a row and Sadio Mane went on the same streak for the Ballon d’Or
- Liverpool representatives are said to have labelled the offer ‘laughable’
- Spartak Moscow have mocked the German club with hilarious tweet
Spartak Moscow have mocked Bayern Munich for their ‘laughable’ offer for Liverpool forward Sadio Mane.
The German giants are said to have offered around £30m for Mane, but with around £7m of that dependent on Champions League and Ballon d’Or success.
A report in The Times claimed that those add-ons hinged on Bayern Munich winning the next three editions of European football’s premier competition and Mane also taking home the prize for the world’s best player in each of those three seasons.
Spartak Moscow published this mocked up letter on their Twitter page on Thursday afternoon
Bayern Munich’s hierarchy have endured a tough few weeks, with players wishing to leave and their negotiation strategy being roundly mocked
Liverpool rebuffed the offer and labelled it ‘laughable’, with sporting director Julian Ward holding out for at least £42.5m for the player.
Piling in on Bayern Munich, who have been roundly mocked on social media for their measly offer, Spartak Moscow were quick to jest with the German giants.
Bayern Munich, sending a mocked up letter to Spartak, offered £850 to the Russian club up front for their star player Alexander Sobolev.
The joke continues when the letter moves down to the add-ons offered by the German club for Sobolev, with £8.5m offered dependent on Bayern Munich winning Eurovision.
Sadio Mane has announced his intention to leave Liverpool for a new challenge this summer
Meanwhile, hilariously, another £12.5m is offered on top of that in add-ons should Manchester United win a trophy.
Plus, there is another £17m on offer for the player should Lionel Messi join Real Madrid.
The Russian club’s social media is known for such japes, with their account gaining traction often for jokes pulled on Twitter.
Sadio Mane has won everything possible at Liverpool but is seeking a new challenge abroad
The letter is concluded ‘Kind regards, Bayern Munich’ alongside an imitated signature.
Bayern Munich’s chase of Mane has been said to have been more complicated by their refusal to allow Polish striker Robert Lewandowski to leave the club for any less than their £40m asking price.
Lewandowski, like Mane, only has a year left to run on his current deal but is three years older than the Senegalese forward.
Barcelona are believed to be the destination Lewandowski most desires, with the Pole said to have felt disrespected by Bayern Munich’s pursuit of Erling Haaland.
