After six glorious seasons at Anfield, Sadio Mane has had his departure confirmed and the Senegal international has bid farewell to the Liverpool faithful who so regularly chanted his name.

"Liverpool have already brought in Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, so what bringing in Darwin Nunez should change is it will give Liverpool more a threat within the penalty box.

From next season onwards, Mane will don another red shirt in the form of Bayern Munich's and while his exit is certainly going to sadden the Liverpool fanbase - they can take comfort in the fact there is £100million attacker waiting in the wings to announce himself ahead of the new season in Darwin Nunez.

Barnes went on to highlight how Nunez's aerial ability will also provide Liverpool with the ability to play a different kind of attacking set-up, something that wasn't possible with Mane in the side.

Barnes' assessment of Liverpool's new forward is correct, with Nunez operating predominantly inside the penalty area.

There are clear differences between the way Mane and Nunez operate, but it must be noted that the latter does also enjoy darting runs off the left flank before cutting in to deliver a decisive finish.

Reds legend John Barnes has discussed Mane's exit alongside Nunez arrival and where the two differ, telling Sky Sports: "It'll be disappointing to see him [Mane] leave as the club did all they could to keep him but they couldn't be held to ransom over paying him what he wanted.
