Mane, 30, was available at 18/1 but is now offered at 5/1 to join Barcelona after a frenetic few days in the betting markets.

But Barca aren't the only interested party.

There's stern competition from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich (7/1), who lead Paris Saint-Germain (10/1), Real Madrid (10/1) and Juventus (18/1).

Inter Milan and Premier League Newcastle are the outsiders of the seven-runner field, both locked together at 22/1.

The AFCON winner has enjoyed another phenomenal campaign at Anfield.

He's bagged 23 goals and provided five assists in 50 appearances in all competitions, helping Liverpool to the FA Cup and Carabao Cup trophies.

That's taken his overall tally to 120 goals and 48 assists in 268 appearances since joining from Southampton for a bargain £37million.

But questions over his future have started to emerge.

The 30-year-old has just over 12 months remaining on his contract, which expires in June 2023.

And Jurgen Klopp is spoiled for choice in attack with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and Colombian star Luis Diaz all on the books.

Reports emerged earlier this month that Mane's representatives had spoken with Bayern chief Hasan Salihamidzic.

And now journalist Florian Plettenberg claims that Mane 'can really imagine' joining Bayern this summer.

He wrote: "News Mane: He can really imagine to join Bayern this summer!

"There is movement in talks with the player and his management. Next 3-4 weeks are decisive. Nagelsmann & Brazzo want him. Transfer fee probably less than €50m."

Mundo Deportivo have also suggested that Mane believes a switch to Barcelona would give him a better chance of winning the Ballon d'Or.
