The move is expected to make the 31-year-old Senegalese forward the highest-paid player in the history of the Saudi Pro League.

Senegalese international Sadio Mane is on the verge of completing a switch to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr. 

The former Liverpool winger is expected to undergo a medical on Monday, following the clubs' agreement on a massive £24 million (Ksh 4,397,589,900) deal with his current team, Bayern Munich.

According to Sky Germany, the eye-watering figures surrounding the transfer have been revealed, indicating that Mane's earnings will skyrocket at Al Nassr.

The 31-year-old Senegalese international will reportedly take home a jaw-dropping £34 million (Ksh 6,229,919,025 ) annually, making his weekly wage an astounding £650,000 (Ksh 119,098,151)

What's even more astonishing is that this lucrative salary will be entirely tax-free.

Should Mane sign the dotted line, he will commit to a contract that runs until 2027, which means he stands to amass an incredible £136 million (Ksh 24,925,802,628) in total earnings if he sees out the entirety of the deal. 

The move to Al Nassr not only signifies a significant financial boost for the talented winger but also promises him a chance to shine alongside the iconic Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi Pro League.

Mane's journey to this momentous payday has been nothing short of remarkable as he only recently made the switch to Bayern Munich last summer in a high-profile £35 million move from Liverpool.

 However, despite an impressive record of 12 goals in 38 appearances, his time at Bayern was marred by an unfortunate incident. 

Following a Champions League defeat to Manchester City in April, Mane found himself in hot water after a physical altercation with teammate Leroy Sane.

Prior to his stint at Bayern, Mane enjoyed immense success during his six-year tenure at Anfield. 

His performances and crucial goals played a pivotal role in Liverpool's remarkable achievements. 

During his time at the Merseyside club, Mane was part of the squad that won the Premier League, the Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, FA Cup, and Carabao Cup.
