Bayern agree Sane deal

Bayern Munich and Manchester City have agreed a deal for the transfer of Leroy Sane, according to multiple sources.

The 24-year-old winger spent a large part of the 2019/20 season on the sidelines having suffered and ACL injury in Community Shield clash against Liverpool last summer. He had reportedly been on the verge of joining the Bundesliga champions back then, but the injury prompted Bayern to withdraw from the negotiations for the time being.

City sought to take advantage of the situation and convince the Germany international to sign a new contract, but their hopes proved in vain. It seems Sane has long had his heart set on returning to his homeland, unhappy with the amount of game-time he was getting under Pep Guardiola even before the injury.

The transfer fee has been set at a total of £54.8 million (€60m) of which Bayern will pay £44.7m initially. The remaining part should come in performance and trophy-related add-ons.
