Ok? That's literally not your problem. Clearly your manager isn't concerned. your You can't control for their future

Approach a manager who will pick somebody responsible for your tasks

The manager told me to pick someone, since she doesn’t sit directly at the client.

Why is this your responsibility?

like

Because I was asked to locate my replacement within the team.

Agreed - it shouldn’t be left up to you. The manager or partner are ultimately responsible for the work - they should pick.

I like it that you are so committed even when you are quitting, you will do great no matter wherever you are!

pick me... I'll do it. min 150k /yr plus relo expenses.

then this is absolutely not your problem. you are not paid high enough for this to be your problem. above your pay grade.
