Bayern Munich’s Sadio Mane in talks over move to Saudi Arabia club Al Nassr

Sadio Mané is currently in talks over a move from Bayern Munich to Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr.

That’s according to Athletic, who say a member of Roof’s agency (representing Mané) met with Al Nassr sporting director Goran Vučević in Portugal this week to discuss a potential switch.

The Senegalese star only joined Bayern last summer from Liverpool for £35m but has had a disappointing first season in Bavaria, scoring seven goals in 25 Bundesliga appearances. He also missed the World Cup due to a leg injury in November.

The striker was also suspended by the club after an altercation with teammate Leroy Sané.

Asked about the 31-year-old’s future, Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel told SPORT1: “(Mane) fell short of expectations. The competitive situation is extremely high, the starting position is not easy for him. The player knows that too, he knows my opinion and the opinion of the club.”

Should Mané decide to move to Saudi Arabia, he would join Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo Brozović and Seko Fofana at Al Nassr.

The PIF-owned club are also hoping to seal the deal for Manchester United full-back Alex Telles.
