BAYERN MUNICH are preparing an improved £30million bid for Liverpool ace Sadio Mane, according to reports.
The German champions offered £21m with an additional £4.6m in add-ons if they win the Champions League.
But according to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are hoping to get around £42.5m for the 30-year-old who has one year left on his deal, which would help fund a replacement.

Jurgen Klopp got to see the player in the flesh during the knockout stages of the Champions League.
