Sadio Mane could be on his way out of Bayern Munich after one season
Sadio Mane could be on his way out of Bayern Munich after one season

Sadio Mane looks set for a move away from Bayern Munich after just one season in Germany.

Mane, 31, signed from Liverpool in a £35million deal last summer but has struggled to make an impact in the Bundesliga, scoring seven goals and producing five assists.

Bayern won their 11th consecutive title in dramatic style but manager Thomas Tuchel is still keen to revamp his squad after a relatively underwhelming season.

Mane could be one of those he looks to sell — with a move to the Saudi Pro League appearing most likely.

Keep refreshing this page for all the latest Mane transfer news and rumours in bite-sized chunks.

29 July: Club confirm transfer talks

Bayern Munich have confirmed that Mane has been left out of the squad for their friendly against Kawasaki Frontale as he is exploring a move away.

A club statement read: "Sadio Mane is in contract talks ahead of a possible transfer and so is not in today's squad."

It is expected that the Senegal international will finalise a move to Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr imminently.

July 28: Here we go

Mane's move to Al-Nassr is nearing completion after the Saudi club's latest round of talks with Bayern.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano confirms there is now a deal in place, subject to a paperwork check on the winger's side and a medical.

Mane is set to join Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo Brozovic, Alex Telles and Seko Fofana at the Riyadh-based outfit.

July 26: Bayern confirm talks

Bayern have confirmed that talks are taking place over the sale of Mane to Al-Nassr.

The winger looks set for the move after Bayern president Herbert Hainer told reporters in Japan: "FC Bayern is informed about this [talks]. These are initial talks, you have to wait and see."

Hainer is also reported as judging Mane's first season in Germany as "certainly not satisfactory, neither for him, nor for us."

July 24: Saudi pay day

Mane is edging ever closer to a move to Al-Nassr, where he is set to earn around £35.4m in net salary.

According to CBS football correspondent James Benge, Bayern will reportedly receive the same figure as a transfer fee.

Senegal's record scorer has two years remaining on his current deal at Bayern after joining the Bundesliga club in June 2022.

July 21: Saudi move close

Mane has agreed terms on a move to Al-Nassr after discussions opened earlier in the week, according to L'Equipe.

The Senegalese is set to hook up with Ronaldo for the Saudi club, with Brozovic also signing from Inter Milan this summer.

The deal would signal the end of a disappointing spell at Bayern for the forward after he signed from Liverpool 12 months ago.
