Transfer: Sadio Mane Delivers Goodbye Message To Teammates Ahead Move To Saudi Arabia Club, Al Nassr

Sadio Mane has said goodbye to his Bayern Munich teammates on Sunday ahead of his move to Al Nassr,  Sky Germany reports.

Mane, a Senegalise international,  is set to undergo a medical with Al Nassr this week after agreeing a four-year deal worth more than €40 million (£34.4m) with the Saudi Arabian club.

Mane joined Bayern Munich from Liverpool last year. The forward did not really impress during his debut season with the Bundesliga champions.

Mane scored the penalty to win Senegal’s first Africa Cup of Nations title and steered his country to the World Cup finals last year.

Yet, the shin injury Mane sustained while playing for Bayern Munich in November ruled him out of the entire tournament.

The former Liverpool star scored just one Bundesliga goal after the World Cup. Rather than fight for form and a starting berth in Bavaria, Mane has agreed terms with Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr, who are captained by a certain Cristiano Ronaldo.

At the end of June, Mane was completely disinterested in any of the offers pouring in from the Saudi Pro League as at the time.

Yet, in the space of two weeks, Mane performed a head-spinning U-turn and accepted Al Nassr’s terms. Admittedly, an annual salary of £34m – £650,000 a week – must be pretty persuasive. Although, he wasn’t exactly struggling for cash at Bayern.
