Bayern Munich have been chasing Leroy Sane since last summer, with the whole thing turning into something of a saga.
At one point it looked like a move was all set to be agreed, with claims from Germany that Sane wouldn’t appear for Manchester City in the Community Shield. Then he did appear, and, perhaps inevitably, picked up an injury which scuppered the move.
Bayern didn’t give up hope, and it’s now claimed they’ve managed to reached an agreement with the Premier League club.
Bild, who have been following the story for over a year, state Sane to Bayern is now ‘perfect’. He’ll sign a five year agreement with Bayern and earn much less than the €20m ceiling previously put in place for the transfer.
Manchester City will be getting less than they would have last summer, with the fee now put at less than €50m. That’s mainly because the player has refused to renew his deal, and subsequently only has a year left on his contract at the English club.
According to the report, City haven’t ‘signalled any interest’ in using Sane for their remaining Champions League matches, so it’s thought he can start training with Bayern in August.
