The Senegal international has announced a move ahead of last season’s Champions League final against Real Madrid and is a £35 million move for the Serie A side. Added to the additional bonuses, his transfer fee will rise to £41million on conditions.
However, Salihamidzic, who played a role in approaching Mane to join the team, has revealed why the 30-year-old chose to leave Anfield with The Times.
“A player like Sadio looks at the club and tells himself he’s had six great years at Liverpool, then what’s next? He chose to move forward cautiously. I know why he chose us, he said, because he felt so many qualities and attitudes here. He is the leader in this matter and is the right person for us.”
“It’s even more obvious when Levy (Lewandowski) is thinking about leaving. But with no top representative So we haven’t agreed to let him go anywhere. But we have many options. We try to make it happen. And that made us let him go. The truth is Sadio, there is no better option,” Salihamidzic said.
