Sadio Mane Becomes Highest-Paid African Footballer with Al-Nassr Move

Senegalese forward Sadio Mane has made a move to Saudi Pro League club Al-Nassr from Bayern Munich, signing a four-year contract until 2027.

With a weekly salary of over £650,000 tax-free, Mane becomes the highest-paid African footballer.

Al-Nassr paid approximately £24m for his services.

Mane joins the club as their fourth signing of the summer transfer window and will wear the No.10 shirt.

He leaves Bayern after just one season, during which he won the Bundesliga title and DFL-Supercup but struggled to make a significant impact.

Mane expressed his disappointment at leaving Bayern, while head coach Thomas Tuchel acknowledged the situation and agreed it was the best solution.

Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen thanked Mane for his time at the club and wished him success at Al-Nassr.

Prior to joining Bayern, Mane had a successful six-year spell with Liverpool, winning six trophies including the Premier League and Champions League.

He may make his debut for Al-Nassr in the Arab Club Champions Cup against Zamalek.
