Senegalese international, Sadio Mane, could be set to return to Europe after Al-Nassr conceded the Saudi Pro League title to rivals, Al-Hilal.

Portuguese legend, Cristiano Ronaldo, could be heartbroken following reports that Turkish giants, Galatasaray, are interested in his teammate.

The former Liverpool forward only left Europe last year after enduring a tough period with German Bundesliga side, Bayern Munich.

Mane has been sensational in front of goal for Al-Nassr, scoring 30 goals in just 42 matches in all competitions.

However, the 32-year-old could be considering a move away from the Saudi outfit as he becomes the subject of a transfer speculation in Turkey, Sportskeeda reports.

Super Lig giants, Galatasaray, are reportedly interested in the Knights of Najd star in a bid to bolster their squad ahead of next season.

They are on the verge of winning the league title and need just one more victory from their last two matches to confirm themselves as champions.

The Turkish giants are already preparing for the challenges of next season, where they would feature in the UEFA Champions League by claiming the Super Lig title.

Mane, who won the European gong with Liverpool, could be tempted to accept the offer to play in the elite competition once again.

But his exit would deal a huge blow to Ronaldo and Al-Nassr, who are attempting to regroup after failing to catch Al-Hilal up in the Saudi Pro League title race.

Mane leaves football fan speechless

Sports Brief earlier reported that a fan was left surprised after Mane humbly accepted his photo request while in his car reading the Islamic scriptures, the holy Quran.

The Senegal international was being chauffeured home by a friend in Saudi Arabia when the fan approached for a selfie, with the ex-Liverpool star readily agreeing.
