Al-Nassr have submitted an official proposal to sign out of favour Bayern Munich star Sadio Mane, claims CBS correspondent James Benge.
Mane has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena following an unremarkable debut campaign with the Bundesliga giants.
The Senegalese forward could be the latest high-profile star to make the switch to the Middle East this summer following a €40 million bid from Al-Nassr.
The Saudi Pro League club are also offering Mane an eye-catching salary package worth €40m per year, although the versatile forward has yet to respond to their proposal.
Mane enjoyed a fast start to life in the Bundesliga, netting five times in his first six appearances, including a goal in their DFL-Supercup victory over RB Leipzig in July.
However, his campaign was derailed in November as he sustained an injury against Werder Bremen that ruled him out of the 2022 World Cup tournament in Qatar.
After over two months on the sidelines, the 31-year-old hit a new low in Bavaria. He was suspended after a violent altercation with teammate Leroy Sane following a capitulating Champions League defeat to Manchester City.
Mane has since been linked with a summer exit from Bayern, and a move to Saudi Arabia could be on the cards if the Senegalese forward green-lights the deal.
The former Liverpool man has been linked to several clubs in Europe, but there have been no takers leaving the Saudis home free in the race to capture his signature.
Bayern are keen to offload Mane as part of their plans to raise funds to pursue a move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The German champions have seen two bids rejected for the England international, with Tottenham reluctant to let their headline performer exit the club this summer.
However, Spurs could be forced into a sale amid reports claiming Kane has no interest in pledging his long-term future to the club with one year left on his existing contract.
