Saudi Pro League club, Al Nassr, welcomed Senegal striker Sadio Mane on Tuesday, where he will join forces with five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo. This move marks Mane as the most recent high-profile player to enter the cash-rich Saudi league.
Formerly a key player at Bayern Munich and Liverpool, Mane is reportedly transferring for around 30 million euros in a three-year deal, with an estimated annual salary of 40 million plus 10 million in results-based bonuses.
Mane’s departure from Bayern Munich was an emotional one, both for him and for Bayern boss, Thomas Tuchel. “Leaving Bayern hurts me. I would have wished for a different ending,” Mane confessed to Sky Germany.
Tuchel mirrored these sentiments, stating that despite a strong personal relationship with Mane, they agreed this was the best move.
At Al Nassr, Mane will be part of the ambitious project that started with the signing of Ronaldo. He will also share the locker room with other high-profile signings, such as Marcelo Brozovic, Alex Telles, and Seko Fofana.
Mane’s move follows a series of impressive signings by Saudi clubs, including Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante to Al-Ittihad, Riyad Mahrez to Al-Ahli, and Jordan Henderson to Al-Ettifaq.
