Mane has Liverpool fans worried ahead of this weekend’s Champions League final, saying he intends to announce his future plans after Saturday’s clash with Real Madrid in Paris.
The 30-year-old is out of contract in 2023 and reports suggest he is keen on a new challenge away from Anfield, with both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid interested in snapping him up.
Bayern have reportedly already held talks with Mane’s representatives and want to make the Senegalese forward their headline signing this summer.
Muller is not getting involved in the speculation, though, with the veteran dismissing rumours and saying he will turn up for pre-season and simply see who is there.
‘If every rumoured player joined us, we would have ended up with a 45-man squad every year,’ Muller said via BILD.

‘I’m going to show up in Säbener Straße [Bayern’s training ground] at the beginning of July and see who else is there.’
Muller himself has signed a contract extension with Bayern this month, keeping him at the club, where he has spent his whole career, until 2024.
Asked why he chose to stay with Bayern, he told TZ: ‘That’s a simple answer, because I have everything I enjoy here in professional soccer.
