Sadio Mane is set to join Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr in a £34m deal, according to reports. The Senegalese international has agreed to a three-year contract with the club lasting till 2027, which will see him earn a net salary of 40 million Euros per season.
Mane joined Bayern Munich from Liverpool last summer for a fee of £35m, but he has struggled to adapt to life in Germany. He has scored just 12 goals in 38 appearances for the Bavarians, and he has been linked with a move away from the club for several months.
Al Nassr are reportedly willing to pay Mane a significant salary in order to lure him to Saudi Arabia. The club is owned by the Saudi royal family, and they have a history of spending big money on players.
Mane’s move to Al Nassr would be a surprise to many, as he is still only 31 years old and he has plenty of years left at the top of the game. However, he may be looking for a new challenge after his disappointing spell at Bayern Munich.
Al Nassr are currently in second place in the Saudi Pro League, and they are looking to challenge for the title this season. Mane’s arrival would give them a major boost in their quest for silverware.
The transfer is still subject to a medical, but it is expected to be completed in the coming days.
Mane’s move to Al Nassr is a big coup for the club. He is a world-class player who has won the Champions League, the Premier League, and the Africa Cup of Nations. He will be a major asset to Al Nassr’s attack, and he could help them win their first league title since 2014.
