Sadio Mane’s time at Liverpool is drawing to a close, after six fantastic seasons at Anfield, with the forward preparing to complete a move to Bayern Munich.
And various press reports stated yesterday that Bayern Munich succeeded in reaching an agreement with Liverpool regarding obtaining the services of the Senegalese player this summer.
It seems that Sadio Mane is on a date to ignite the Bundesliga next season, but what is the shirt number that he will wear with the German champions? This is what the English “sportsritenow” network talked about in its report today.
Mane has worn only four different numbers of shirts during his football career so far. In his first season as a professional for the French team Metz, he was handed the number 33 shirt, before wearing 21 the following season.
After moving to Salzburg in the middle of the 2012/13 season, Mane initially wore the number 40 shirt, before switching to the number 10 shirt for the rest of his time in Austria, as was the case during his two seasons at Southampton.
Liverpool eventually handed Mane his favorite number again, but not before he had to wear the number 19 shirt in two seasons.
Unfortunately for Mane, Leroy Sane is currently wearing the No. 10 shirt at the Allianz Arena and it seems unlikely that the German will abandon him.

Another of his previous numbers, 19, is also used by Alphonso Davies, an equally influential player at the club.
Shirts with numbers 4, 12, 15, 16 and 17 are available, Mane is likely to take one of them, numbers 27 to 35 are also available.
Corentin Tolisso will leave Bayern Munich on June 30 when his contract expires, and his 24th shirt will also be available.
Robert Lewandowski, who is currently wearing the number nine shirt, is keen to join Barcelona this summer, and that would be good news for Mane if he wants the famous shirt.
