Sadio Mane: Former Liverpool Star Linked With English Premier League Return
- Sadio Mane could make a return to the English Premier League
- Newcastle United are said to be interested in the Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia striker
- The Magpies are having a decent season, but a number of their first-team players are out injured
Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia striker Sadio Mane is being touted for an English Premier League return, according to multiple reports.
Newcastle United are said to be eyeing the Senegalese international ahead of the January transfer window as Eddie Howe continues to bolster his squad.
The Magpies are currently having a decent season; however, they have not been able to replicate their kind of performance for the last campaign.
A number of their first-team players are out injured, while Sandro Tonali has been handed a ban following disciplinary actions.
It was gathered that Newcastle United are very close to their spending limit due to Financial Fair Play rules, which could force the club to shop for players in Saudi Arabia, according to Hard Tackle.
Saudi Public Investment Fund owns Newcastle, and they also own several clubs in the Middle East, meaning the Magpies can sign players who have recently joined Al-Nassr, Al-Hilal, Al-Ittihad or Al-Ahli.
The Premier League club have been linked with several players from the Middle East, and Sadio Mane's name has also emerged.
The former Liverpool winger will add goals, creativity and experience to their ranks. His arrival could boost the morale of others around him, and the Magpies might be able to fulfil their expectations for this season.
