After the meeting, Sonko disclosed that he encouraged the Teranga Lions' legend to invest in other areas of the economy. He said:

"I encourage him in this direction and appeal to all Senegalese wishing to support the collective effort towards a better Senegal to come and invest in the structural transformation of our economy."

The prime minister also used the opportunity to reaffirm his commitment to the nation, saying he would create an enabling environment to support national investors.

Sonko also commended the veteran's decision to offer free advertising to the national company, Air Senegal, through a display on the jerseys of the Bourges Foot 18 club.

According to Africa Top Sports, Mane was applauded for his personal efforts to the country's development by investing in Bambali, where he was born, and other nooks and crannies of Senegal.

Fenerbahce interested in Sadio Mane

Sports Brief earlier reported that Mane is reportedly leaving Al-Nassr in the summer transfer window, with Fenerbahce interested in his signature.

The winger could be newly-appointed Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho's first signing following reports of a potential loan move to the Turkish side.

Mane's high salary at Al-Nassr is believed to be a problem for the Knights of Najd, who are considering options, including parting ways with the forward.
