Leroy Sane would happily give up his No.10 shirt at Bayern if new signing Sadio Mane wants it.
That’s according to the Germany international’s dad, who was speaking after Mane, 30, officially joined Bayern from Liverpool in a £35.1million transfer.
Sane received the shirt number when he left Manchester City in 2020, while Mane has worn the No.10 in the latter stages of his Liverpool career, and currently wears it on international duty.
“Sadio Mane is known with the number 10 at Liverpool and the national team – while at Bayern my son wears it,” Souleymane Sane told Radio Futurs Medias.
“If Sadio wants the number 10, I’m certain there would be no problem for Leroy to give it to him.”
Mane leaves Anfield having played 269 games and scoring 120 goals in all competitions.
During his time with the Reds, he picked up various honours which includes the Champions League, won in 2019 and the Premier League title a season later.
Mane claims it took him just ‘seconds’ to make his decision to leave Liverpool for the Bundesliga champions when speaking at his unveiling.
“I was really, really clear in my mind,” he said. “When I was told about the interest from Bayern we discussed it.
“I think it wasn’t even days, just seconds and I made my decision.
“I think it’s the right decision, the right time and the right club. As a Bayern supporter or a Bayern player, you know already the project of the club.
“If you play for this club you need to know you’re here to fight for all the trophies possible.”
