Done Deal: Leroy Sane ‘agrees Bayern Munich move’
NEWS DIGEST – Bayern Munich has agreed on a deal to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City, according to a report.
Sport Bild claims the Bundesliga champions will pay under €50 million for the 24-year-old, who has reportedly signed a five-year deal in Germany until 2025.
City boss Pep Guardiola had previously admitted the winger wanted to leave the Etihad and had turned down a new contract.
“When we make an offer to a player it’s because we want him,” the Spaniard said earlier in June.
“He has a special quality. We want players who want to play with the club to achieve targets. He is a nice guy and I love him so much. I have nothing against – but he wants another adventure.”
Sane picked up a serious knee injury in August’s Community Shield and only returned to action as a substitute in City’s 5-0 win over Burnley last week.
Despite the surprisingly low fee – half of the €100 million quoted last summer – it is still expected to be the second most expensive transfer in Bundesliga history.
