Sadio Mane has stated that he has no intention of leaving Bayern Munich this summer, despite rumored interest from new Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Senegal international joined the Bundesliga heavyweights from Liverpool in a move worth roughly £32 million last summer.
However, Mane has failed to hold down a first-team berth in Germany, scoring only 12 goals in his debut season.
Following Bayern’s defeat to Manchester City last month, the former Liverpool player had a spat with Leroy Sane and was fined two weeks’ salary.
Thomas Tuchel is eager on bringing in a forward this summer, which will add to Mane’s lack of playing time.
Pochettino is a big fan of Mane, and he suits the type of player the Argentine is looking for at Chelsea.
Mane was a vital role in Jurgen Klopp’s high press at Liverpool, and he’s built for the pace and intensity of the English game.
Mane, according to Fabrizio Romano, is content in Germany and has no plans to return to England.
The former Southampton star is eager to succeed at Bayern and believes in the club’s vision.
