Al Nasr announced on the 2nd (Korean time) that they had recruited striker Sadio Mane through their official social network service (SNS). His contract is for four years, until 2027, and he wears the number 10 shirt.
Mane’s former club Munich also announced his move to Al Nasr. Having played only one year in Munich, he left the European stage after scoring 12 goals in 38 matches.
Mane has been rumored to move to Saudi Arabia since mid-July.
Mane left Liverpool ahead of the 2022/23 season and took on his new challenge. He scored 120 goals in 268 games for Liverpool and made a name for himself as the best striker, but moved to Germany with a transfer to Munich.
Munich paid Liverpool a transfer fee of 40 million euros (approximately 57.1 billion won) to bring Mane.
However, it was very disappointing for his expected scoring ability. Furthermore, a feud with his teammate and even an assault incident occurred, clouding the team atmosphere. After a crushing 0-3 loss to Manchester City in the first leg of the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League quarter-final held in March, Mane sparked controversy by punching Sane in the face in the locker room after arguing with Sane. stood in the center
At the time, the locals expressed negative opinions about Mane’s assault to the point of even publishing an article saying, “He must be released.”
The Munich club officially announced that the party, Sane, did not want a strong punishment, and only punished Mane with a fine and a one-game suspension. Mane, who later returned to the club, showed reconciliation with Sane, and afterwards he participated in training hard and expressed his will to remain in Munich.
However, Munich decided to break up with Mane, who caused controversy by beating a colleague, as his performance did not live up to expectations even though he was recruited for a considerable transfer fee, although it has only been a year since he was recruited.
Munich and Al Nasr toured Asia in Japan during pre-season. In addition, the player’s agent went to Japan and negotiations were able to be carried out quickly.
Sky Sports German reporter Florian Plettenberg said on the 26th, “Mane’s agent, Bjorn Bezemer, is having talks with Al Nasr in Tokyo.” “There has still been no agreement or concrete offer,” he said. “Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel approved the transfer. Instead, Mane made a good impression during training sessions:”. 먹튀검증
The reporter revealed that Mane’s transfer fee, which Munich wants, is about 32 million euros (about 45.2 billion won), including options. This amount is more than enough for Al-Nasr to agree on.
Mane conducted a medical test in Dubai, UAE on the 1st and successfully completed the transfer process. He now plays in Saudi Arabia alongside Ronaldo and other players who have played in Europe, including Marcelo Brozovic, Alex Telles and Seko Popana.
