Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have, at last, reached a definitive agreement over the sale of attacker Sadio Mane.
The name of Senegalese international Mane has of course taken its place front and centre in the gossip columns across the summer to date.
Fresh off a turbulent debut campaign in Munich, which saw him fail to hit the heights of his famed Liverpool stint, as well as suffer a heavy fine for punching teammate Leroy Sane, the frontman has long been hotly tipped to bring a swift close to the German chapter of his career.
In turn, on Friday evening, it should come as little surprise to hear of precisely that inching a significant step closer.
As confirmed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, a deal is now ‘in place’ between Bayern, and their counterparts at Saudi Pro League outfit Al-Nassr.
Mane, for his part, has already given the green light to the move, with a medical, in turn, set to be pencilled in for the 31-year-old over the coming days.
The arrival of Mane will cap what has proven a hugely productive summer to date at Al-Nassr, with the Riyadh-based club having already added all of Marcelo Brozovic, Alex Telles, and Seko Fofana to the talents of five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.
