Check Out “Sadio Mane may join Cristiano Ronaldo in Al Nassr.” The former Liverpool player is allegedly talking about a lucrative transfer from Bayern Munich to the Middle East, according to sources from The Athletic.
According to reports, a representative from the agency that represents Mane met with Goran Vucevic, the sporting director of Al Nassr, in Portugal to talk about a potential partnership.
Bayern, the defending Bundesliga champions, are presently in Portugal with Mane as they get ready to defend their crown once more in the upcoming season.
Mane only moved from Liverpool to Bayern Munich last summer for a fee of £35 million.
He agreed to a deal that would keep him in Germany until 2025, but he struggled in his first season, managing just seven goals in 25 Bundesliga games.
Bernardo Silva could end up becoming the newest high-profile player to leave the Etihad Stadium, and Manchester City is prepared to fight to prevent that.
Silva is open to leaving City and is desired by European powerhouses Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona. There has also been rumored interest from Saudi Arabia.
Pep Guardiola is eager to hold onto Silva, though, having already lost treble-winning captain Ilkay Gundogan to Barca and decided to trade Riyad Mahrez to Saudi Pro League team Al Ahli.
The ideal situation for City would be for the Portuguese wizard, who has won five Premier League championships, to sign a contract extension before the end of his current term in 2025.
If that doesn’t work, the European champions will try to deter potential bidders by demanding a transfer fee of at least £70 million.
