BAYERN MUNICH are still falling short of Liverpool's valuation of Sadio Mane, it's claimed.
The Senegalese international has made it known he is looking for a move away from the Reds this summer, despite another stellar season.
Mane scored 23 goals in a colossal season for Jurgen Klopp's men, where dreams of the quadruple got away from them at the end of the campaign.

Bayern's original offer for the 30-year-old would only amount to £30m if the forward helped the club win THREE Champions League titles in a row.
