Sadio Mane has completed a move from Bayern Munich to Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr, where he will earn £650,000 a week.

Mane has signed a contract until 2027 which means he stands to earn around £136m in total if he sees out the deal.

The 31-year-old only joined Bayern last summer on a three-year deal following a £35m move from Liverpool, but he fell out of favour after punching team-mate Leroy Sane following a Champions League defeat by Manchester City in April.

Mane was dropped from the squad and fined as Bayern won an 11th consecutive Bundesliga title. The winger scored 12 goals in 38 appearances.

He travelled on Bayern's pre-season tour of Asia but was left out of Saturday's friendly with Kawasaki Frontale in Tokyo.

"Sadio Mane is in contract talks ahead of a possible transfer and so is not in today's squad," said Bayern.

Mane left Anfield having made 269 appearances, scoring 120 goals in all competitions, after signing from Southampton in 2016.
