Liverpool is waiting Bayern Munich’s response after a second offer for Sadio Mane has been denied before they move ahead with plans to finalize the signing of Darwin Nunez from Benfica.

The Reds are reluctant to let Mane go after six years of outstanding service, but only if Bayern meet their rating.

A £30million offer was flatly rejected earlier this week, with senior Liverpool officials branding the offer a “joke” as it contained several likely unattainable bonus clauses.
