Liverpool and Sadio Mane has completed the deal which would see the player move to Anfield from Southampton.
The Senegalese has put to pen a 5-year contract after passing medical examinations and agreeing on personal terms. He will officially join the Reds on July 1.
“Today is a big day and I am very happy to sign for one of the biggest clubs in Europe,” 24-year-old Mane said.
“It’s a club that has won a lot of trophies and has a big history,” he added. “Now I am looking forward to meeting all the staff and my teammates and starting the season.”
Mane’s transfer fee could rise to £36 million despite the reported £34 million, which in turn would make him the club’s most expensive signing. He follows players such as Loris Karius, Marko Grujic and Joel Matip in joining the Jurgen Klopp’s Anfield squad this summer transfer season.
In Italy, Dani Alves has completed his move to Serie A champions Juventus.
The Brazilian, transferring on free agent from F.C. Barcelona, says he will wear the No. 23 shirt with his new club in honour of LeBron James.
“LeBron James is someone I admire for the way he constantly reinvents himself and never rests on his laurels, always aiming for new challenges and triumphs,” Alves said of the recent NBA champion.
Alves, 33, has also set his sights on winning the Champions League with his new side.
“The club’s dream is to win the Champions League, and I hope to help them achieve this,” Alves said. “I can’t say exactly what Juventus require to win the Champions League. That’s something I’ll begin to work out from now onwards.”
“We need to believe we can win the Champions League if we are to do so. My teammates and I will give it our best shot.”
