Sadio Mane to leave Bayern Munich. According to reports, Sadio Mane is attracting interest from the Saudi Pro League and is poised to leave Bayern Munich this summer.
According to Florian Plettenberg of Sky Sports Germany, Mane is anticipated to leave the Allianz Arena, and Bayern is awaiting offers. The Senegalese winger has only been with the Bavarians for a year, but it now appears like he will go.
The newest well-known name being pursued by Saud giants is Mane. Plettenberg mentioned Al-Ahli as one of the teams with an interest in the Senegalese winger.
The 31-year-old was thought to be one of Europe’s best attackers when he transferred from Liverpool to Bayern Munich last summer for €32 million. At Anfield, he scored 120 goals and provided 48 assists in 269 appearances.
Mane hasn’t been able to duplicate that performance for the Bundesliga champions, either. In a season marred by a major injury that prevented him from competing in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, he managed 12 goals and six assists. The Senegal international may now be traveling to the Middle East, where he might run across Roberto Firmino, a former Liverpool teammate.
Al-Ahli is reportedly interested in teaming the Bayern Munich attacker with Firmino in attack, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. After his deal with the Merseysiders expired, the Brazilian signed a free-agent contract with Al-Malaki.
When leaving Liverpool for Bayern Munich, what did Sadio Mane say?:
The departure of Sadio Mane from Liverpool last summer dealt Jurgen Klopp’s team a devastating blow.
During their recent run of success, in which they won the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, FA Cup, and League Cup, he was one of their standout players.
The seasoned winger stated that he desired to leave Anfield to embark on a fresh journey (via BBC Sport): “It was the appropriate time for me. One year ago, I spoke with the coach (Jurgen Klopp) and expressed my intention to go. Since my life was always a hardship because I was raised in a tiny town, as you can see from my story, I constantly desire to challenge myself.”
Mane traveled to Germany with Bayern Munich because he wanted to take on a fresh challenge. He hasn’t put on the same electrifying performances that earned him praise at Anfield, though.
The Senegalese forward also got into an altercation with teammate Leroy Sane during a 3-0 Champions League loss to Manchester City in March. They patched things up, but since then, things at the Allianz Arena have remained precarious.
