Sadio Mané joins Cristiano Ronaldo: Who will he be in trouble with this time? – Saudi Arabia

It’s official! Journalist Fabrizio Romano, a specialist in market issues, confirmed that Al Nassr had signed Sadio Mané. Bayern Munich have accepted the verbal offer made by the club of Cristiano Ronaldo and Luís Castro, with only contract details to be worked out and essential medical tests to be carried out.

Yet another deal that takes a star who aligned himself in Europe to Saudi football and which many doubted could even happen. The truth is that after a single season in the Bundesliga, filled with controversy, the Senegalese player is now embarking on a new professional adventure.

After missing the World Cup in Qatar, through injury, and creating a lot of friction at Bayern, especially with coach Julian Nagelsmann and teammate Leroy Sané, with whom he was at odds, Mané is now moving on to other places and with a record. of 12 goals in 38 games for the Bavarians.

He was one of the figures of the last transfer market. He left Liverpool and was made official as a reinforcement for Bayern Munich, after signing a contract valid until 2025. From the moment the Senegalese international said with his mouth full that he wanted to leave Liverpool, the German group has immediately started to shake things up. strings’, not least because Lewandowski, one of its main stars, also came out to say he wanted a change of scenery and go to Catalonia.

From the Bavarians’ point of view, it turned out to be a good deal as they saved a top player for a ‘trifle’. They paid out €32m (plus 8m goals), an almost negligible sum for someone who was considered one of the best players in the world at the time and had a market value of €70m. €, according to ‘Transfermarkt’.

And these values ​​were only possible because Mané would enter the last year of the contract and, therefore, there was the possibility of leaving at zero cost after one year.

For Sadio Mané himself, it was also a good result, as he remained at the top of world football and somehow managed to ‘fake’ some of the monotony that he had in England. There were six seasons at the top level, during which he helped the Reds regain the throne of world football, having won every trophy possible.

For all this, Bayern Munich has been a breath of fresh air in his career. “I’m very happy to finally be at Bayern in Munich. We talked a lot and I felt a great interest in this club from the start, so there was no doubt for me. It’s the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club. , in Europe too. During my time at Salzburg, I saw a lot of Bayern games. I like this club a lot,” said the Senegalese striker.

This purchase also meant a “refreshment” at Bayern Munich itself. With the departure of the man-goal, coach Julian Nagelsmann spoke to the management of the German emblem and demanded at all costs to hire Mané, who fitted like a glove in the changes that were being put into practice.

Without Lewandowski, Nagelsmann presented a more mobile attack, with constant movement and exchanges between the men in front. In training, Mané changed sides… but he would continue to play the same way.

The truth is, things didn’t go well, especially emotionally, and now Saudi Arabia appears on the horizon. Selected 94 times by the Senegal national team, in which he scored 34 goals, Mané arrived in European football at 19, by the French side of Metz, after leaving Génération Foot, in his native country. This was followed by spells at Salzburg, Southampton and Liverpool, a club for which he scored 120 goals in 269 games.

He has won a Champions League, a World Championship, a European Super Cup, a Premier League, an FA Cup and a League Cup, but the truth is that all has not been rosy at Liverpool, mainly due to coexistence with other colleagues. Nobody is surprised to say that Mané and Salah were not the best friends in the world. In fact, on the pitch, the distance between the two was noticeable, and there were even discussions mid-game. We already know that it is not always a good idea to put two roosters together in the same hen. Or Mané with other stars… Now it’s Cristiano Ronaldo who will support him…
