As he nears a transfer to Al-Nassr, Sadio Mane has acknowledged that he wishes things had gone differently for him at Bayern Munich.
Mane has travelled to Dubai to complete the first portion of his medical ahead of signing a deal with the Saudi Arabian team that will keep him there through 2027.
The winger will earn £650,000 per week and join Al-Nassr in a £34m deal.
Although Mane won the Bundesliga championship after switching from Liverpool to Bayern last year, the trade wasn’t fully successful.
Mane told Sky Sports: “leaving FC Bayern hurts me. I would have wished for a different ending. I know that I could have helped the team this season. I wanted to prove it to everyone this season. Nevertheless, I only wish the club xand the fans the best for the future.”
Mane had an injury while playing for Bayern Munich, which prevented him from representing Senegal at the World Cup in Qatar.
Following allegations that Mane struck teammate Leroy Sane in the locker room following a loss to Manchester City, Bayern Munich suspended and fined Mane in April.
Mane played for Bayern in 38 different games overall, scoring 12 goals and dishing out six assists.
Mane joined Liverpool in 2016 from Southampton and had a tremendously successful time there.
He won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Club World Cup, and UEFA Super Cup while playing for Liverpool, scoring 120 goals in 269 appearances.
Mane will be joining Christiano Ronaldo in Al-Nassr and together the duo might form the most devastating attack in Saudi Pro League.
