Senegalese forward Sadio Mane (31), who played in the German professional soccer team Bayern Munich, will move to Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) instead of Kim Min-jae.
Al Nasr announced the signing of Mane on Feb. 2 (KST). His contract runs until 2027.
According to Sky Sports Germany, his transfer fee is in the neighborhood of 30 million euros ($42.5 billion).
Mane, who has scored 37 goals in 97 appearances for Senegal, has played for Metz (France), Salzburg (Austria), Southampton, Liverpool (England) and Bayern Munich.
He spent six seasons at Liverpool, starting in 2016, scoring 120 goals in 269 games before moving to Munich for the 2022-2023 season, where he scored 12 goals in 38 official games.
In April of this year, he received a one-match suspension and a fine from the club for punching teammate Leroy Sane in the face after an argument following a UEFA Champions League (UCL) match against Manchester City (England).
His relationship with the club became uncomfortable and he eventually left for Saudi Arabia after just one season.
After signing Ronaldo at the end of last year, Al Nasr added Croatia international midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, formerly of Inter Milan, and Mane this summer.
These are just a few of the players who have made a name for themselves in Europe and are headed to Saudi Arabia.
Riyad Mahrez, a member of Manchester City’s triple treble last season, recently joined Al-Ahli, while former Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson joined Al-Ettifaq and Fabinho joined Al-Ittihad. 토토사이트
