Sadio Mane Picks A Surprising New Jersey Number At Bayern Munich.

Following his high-profile transfer from Liverpool, Sadio Mane has decided which squad number he will wear for Bayern Munich.

After six tremendously successful seasons with the Reds, the 30-year-old attacker moved to Bayern Munich for £35 million, according to BBC Sport. He excelled there in every position Jurgen Klopp requested him to play in the front three.

Mane will wear the number 17 shirt, which on the surface seems to be a wholly arbitrary choice, the Bundesliga winners confirmed over the weekend on Twitter.

Leroy Sane, a winger, currently wears the number 10, which Mane wore when playing for Liverpool. According to Bavarian Football Works, Sane's father allegedly mentioned that the former Manchester City attacker could be willing to give Mane his shirt number, but nothing ever came of it.

The Senegalese international's selection put a stop to reports that he may select either number 7 or number 9, which are occupied by Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski, respectively. This summer, both of these players have been connected to moves away from the Allianz Arena.

Michael Cuisance, who left Bayern Munich in January to sign with Italian team Venezia, turns over the number 17 jersey to Sadio Mane.

Following his move from Southampton to Liverpool in 2016, Sadio Mane went on to win every major team honour available to him and now clearly feels it is time for a new challenge.
