Sadio Mane, the former Liverpool forward, has made a move to Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr from Bayern Munich. During his time at Bayern, Mane scored 12 goals in 38 games for the German champions. However, he faced difficulties during his tenure, with an injury shortly before the World Cup causing him to miss out on participating with Senegal, the team he had previously led to their first triumph at the Africa Cup of Nations. This long absence affected his contributions to FC Bayern, and it was decided mutually that Mane would seek a fresh start at another club.
In this transfer, Mane joins Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr. The deal seems to have seen Bayern recoup the £35m they initially paid Liverpool for Mane a year ago. Meanwhile, in the Saudi Pro League, this move could lead to new challenges for both players as they start their journey with Al-Nassr.
