A former Liverpool star has urged Senegalese forward Sadio Mane to leave Anfield for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Reports in England claim that Bayern are targeting a move for the Africa Cup of Nations winner, who is heading into the final year of his contract.
Former Reds goalkeeper David James feels that now is the perfect time in Mane's career to make the switch from England to Germany.
"I was just looking at his achievements. I think the FA Cup is the only trophy he hasn’t won in England,"James told Sky Sports.
"You add the Champions League, the Africa Cup of Nations, then this guy is in the purple patch of his career. I think he is still the record-holder for the quickest hat-trick in the Premier League as well."
"If you have an optimum time where you can make the most of a move, given that he isn’t English then, therefore, he’s a traveler.
"The idea of going to Germany and playing for Bayern Munich would be something that suits his overall career.
"Now is the time to do it for Sadio Mane, as much as I know Liverpool fans will be saying ‘no I want him to stay till the end of his career’. If he has a perfect opportunity, then this season will be it."
