Bayern Munich have confirmed Sadio Mane is in talks over leaving the club, with Saudi side Al-Nassr closing in on his signature.
Mane is set to depart the Allianz Arena after just one season, with a deal on the verge of completion with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr.
The 31-year-old was left out of Bayern’s squad for the friendly against Kawasaki Frontale in Japan, and the club confirmed he is negotiating over an exit.
After leaving Liverpool, Mane endured a nightmare campaign in Bavaria as a result of inconsistent form, injury problems and a now-infamous dressing room clash with team-mate Leroy Sane.
In a tweet including their line-up for the friendly against Kawasaki Frontale, Bayern Munich wrote: “Sadio Mane is in contract talks about a change of club and is therefore not in the squad today”.
The attacker is now set for a medical with the Saudi Pro League club after a deal was agreed between the two clubs, and the transfer will likely be announced in due course.
