Sadio Mane is one of the brightest African football players of the last decade. He has been twice named the best African footballer (in 2019 and 2022) and won the Africa Cup with the Senegal national team. Mane rose to global stardom while playing for Liverpool. As a member of the Reds, he won the English Premier League (2020), English FA Cup (2022), UEFA Champions League (2018/19), and UEFA Super Cup (2019/20). In the 2018/19 season, he was the top scorer in the English Premier League with 22 goals (sharing the award with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal and Mohamed Salah from Liverpool).
In the past season, he became a Bundesliga champion with Bayern Munich. Mane played 25 matches for the German club in the national championship and scored seven goals. In the UEFA Champions League, the forward scored three goals in nine matches. However, in Bayern, he was remembered not for his performance, but for a scuffle with his teammate Leroy Sane. As a result of the club investigation, the Senegalese player was temporarily suspended from the main team. Mane's contract with the German champions is valid until June 30, 2025.
List of latest Sadio Mane transfer odds
According to bookmakers, the Senegalese player will continue his career in the Saudi Arabian league, and the Sadio Mane next club odds clearly reflect this. The chances of the forward staying in Europe are not very high, but let's have a look at all possible Sadio Mane transfer odds.

Any Saudi Pro League club
The first news about Sadio Mane's next club being a team from Saudi Arabia appeared immediately after the end of the European season. Local league clubs have already made several transfers during this offseason, which have made the entire football world talk about them. In particular, a pretty large number of players from European top clubs moved to the Persian Gulf country, including Karim Benzema (Real Madrid), N'Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy (both players are from Chelsea), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool). And of course, let's not forget that Cristiano Ronaldo has been playing in Saudi Arabia since last year.
The second most likely Sadio Mane next club option is Newcastle. However, it should be noted that the odds for such a transfer range from 9.00 to 19.00.
After a 20-year absence from the UEFA Champions League, Newcastle United is looking for ways to strengthen its squad. The Magpies have announced only one major transfer so far, which is Sandro Tonali, a midfielder from AC Milan, but it is quite possible that the club is not looking to strengthen its attacking line. Last year, Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak played on the front line for Newcastle. This summer, Chris Wood, a New Zealand forward, has also returned from his loan spell to Nottingham Forest.
Not all Chelsea fans understand the club's recent transfer decisions, but the chances of Sadio Mane appearing at Bridge Stamford are still poor. For this scenario, bookmakers give odds ranging from 11.00 to 21.00, which, of course, does not exclude such a possibility.
In this transfer window, Chelsea is more likely to be busy selling their players, but they have still made a few acquisitions. They purchased Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig for €60 million and paid Villarreal €37 million for forward Nicolas Jackson.
Perhaps some people think that Sadio Mane returning to Anfield would be a beautiful story, but it is hard to believe in such a scenario. If you are sure that the Senegalese player will play for Liverpool again in the 2023-24 season, you can place a bet at odds ranging from 19.00 to 41.00.
Given the competition in Liverpool's attacking line, Mane simply wouldn't have a place in the squad. In addition, the team has strengthened their attacking potential in this transfer window, adding Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig and Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton.
Despite the unclear situation in the French top club's attacking line next season, bookmakers evaluate Sadio Mane's move to Paris at odds of 21.00. Who knows, if Neymar and Kylian Mbappe transfers do happen, PSG may consider acquiring the Senegalese player. However, currently, it is pretty difficult to believe in such a scenario.
It should be noted that PSG has acquired forward Hugo Ekitike from Reims for €28.5 million, but he is certainly not considered as a possible replacement for the Parisian stars.
