Al Nassr Signs Senegal Forward Mane From Bayern Munich


Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr have completed the signing of Senegal forward Sadio Mane from Bayern Munich, the Saudi Arabian club announced on Tuesday.

Mane, 31, moved to Bayern in 2022 after scoring 120 goals in 269 games for Liverpool. He also won the UEFA Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and the Club World Cup.

The two-time African Footballer of the Year was a key figure in Liverpool’s attack but failed to make the same impression at Bayern. Mane fell out with team mate Leroy Sane and hit the German winger. He was fined and suspended for the offence.

The Senegalese international won the German Bundesliga with Bayern Munich on the final day of the 2022/2023 season. He scored 12 goals for the German champions.

Mane joins new signings Marcelo Brozovic from Inter Milan and Seko Fofana from Lens, while left back Alex Telles  joined from Manchester United.

Al Nassr were runners-up last season in the Saudi Pro League and would look to go one step further this season.

The club were banned from registering new players earlier this month due to outstanding debts, with FIFA saying they had to pay $504,712 related to the transfer of Nigerian Ahmed Musa from Leicester City.
