Latest news regarding this reported Newcastle United transfer target emerges ahead of the summer

Newcastle United-linked Sadio Mané intends to stay at Bayern Munich. The attacker only made the move to the Bundesliga last summer from Liverpool.

Sky Sports Germany named the Toon Army and Manchester United as two clubs who could look to try and lure the Senegal international back to the Premier League. However, the pair will need to look elsewhere for potential reinforcements in the next transfer window.

Reporter Fabrizio Romano claims Mané ‘wants’ to remain in Munich for now. He remains under contract at the Allianz Arena until 2025 meaning Bayern are under no pressure to cash in on him.

Newcastle will be in the hunt for some additions ahead of next term with it looking increasingly that they will be playing in Europe. They may have seen the 31-year-old as someone to bolster their options up top.

Mané, who has made 95 caps for Senegal, cut ties with Liverpool 12 months ago after six years at Anfield. He was hit during his time with the Reds and scored 120 goals in 269 games for the Merseyside outfit, helping them win both the league title and Champions League during his time working under Jurgen Klopp.

He had spells at Red Bull Salzburg and Metz before linking up with Southampton in 2014. The forward hit the ground running straight away with the Saints and fired in 25 goals in 75 outings.

Since moving to Bayern Munich, Mané has found the net 12 times. His side are currently top of the table ahead of Borussia Dortmund.

Newcastle have some big transfer decisions to make over the next couple of months as they prepare for another year under Eddie Howe. The Magpies are back in action on Thursday evening at home to Brighton and Hove Albion as they look to keep their momentum going.
