What do think of this one? 30m is the figure floating around.

Alright jay,
From what i can remember this player had a great season last season but i’ve alway’s been against signing a player of the back of one good season, has to be more consistent than that for me and at 30mill i fear another benteke situation but on the other hand mane could be the exception, is it worth the gamble, i’m not so sure.

It’s ironic that we are getting wingers and then getting rid of Benteke, whose game this last year cried out for wingers to feed him.

I know we aren’t going to go take players from Bayern and Juventus and Real, but do we have to continually pilfer them from Southampton? To make it worse we see them finish ahead of us in the table.
How about we try to get some of the players they find through scouting and development before they do and not have to pay them £30m for one after one respectable (not world beating) year?

Buying a player like Mane makes a certain amount of sense. He can play as a winger but also as striker if necessary which might be a useful fall back if and when we sell Benteke and if Sturridge and Origi were both injured at the same time. Whether he is worth the reported £30 million only time would tell. I certainly wouldn’t pay over that for him.

Sounds like Southampton will complete the signing of Nathan Redmond for £11m as he passed his medical, to pave way for Mane to leave

Looks like it’s a done deal as long as the medical went alright today

Reading around the forums a lot of people are complaining about the pricetag on mane said to be between 34-36 million, you would think it was there money that LFC are spending. Who cares what he cost, as supporters all we should care about is what he does on the pitch, it’s all i care about anyway. It’s a gamble of course and hopefully we don’t end up with another benteke situation. If we can recoup 20mill on benteke then the money spent on mane won’t look so much and i’m sure that’s what fsg/klopp are thinking as well.
