Saudi Pro League-bound side, Al Qadisiyah, are set to break the bank to sign Senegal forward, Sadio Mane, ahead of the summer transfer window.

The mega-rich club have targeted the Al-Nassr star alongside some big names as they prepare for next season's Saudi topflight league.

With two games remaining to end the season, Al Qadisiyah holds a nine-point lead at the top of the table, confirming their promotion.

Their coach, José Miguel González Martín del Campo, commonly known as Michel, is a big fan of Mane and has made him his top priority.

According to Wiwsport, Al Qadisiyah is ready to make a mouthwatering offer for the 32-year-old in the transfer window.

Mane alongside veteran forward Cristiano Ronaldo have been Al-Nassr's star players, playing leading roles as the Knights of Najd confirm their second-place position in the league.

The former Liverpool forward has netted 13 goals and delivered eight assists in the Saudi Pro League this season, per Transfermarkt.

He could end the season with the King's Cup trophy as Al-Nassr are set to face champions Al-Hilal in the final later this month.

Mane joined Al-Nassr last summer after a troubled one season in Germany with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Meanwhile, Al Qadisiyah is reportedly lining up moves for other big names, including World Cup winner Nabil Fekir and Liverpool captain Virgil Van Dijk.

There are also reports that the club are in talks with Jose Mourinho to become the next coach.

Mane humbly accepts fan's photo request

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that a fan was left surprised after Sadio Mane humbly accepted his request to take a photo with him while in his car reading the Islamic scriptures, the holy Quran.

Mane was being chauffeured home by a friend in Saudi Arabia when the fan approached for a selfie.

The Senegal international did not hesitate as he allowed the man to take a photo, but while leaving he spotted Mane reading the Quran.
