Bayern ‘complete deal’ to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City
- German Champions set to land wantaway City winger
- Sane agreed a five-year deal at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday
- Guardiola had announced that the German winger had refused to extend his contract at Etihad Stadium
- Mental Health and Psychosocial considerations during the COVID-19 pandemic
Bayern Munich are set to land Manchester City Leroy Sane for almost £55million.
Reports indicate that Sane has agreed to a five-year deal with the German Champions and is set to join them when the season ends.
Last month Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola announced that the winger had expressed his wish to leave and was not going to sign a new deal at the Etihad Stadium.
City are said to have accepted an offer worth an initial £45m plus £10m in add-ons for the winger, who had entered the final year of his contract.
Sane has been in Bayern’s radar since last year and was valued at more than £130m last summer as the two clubs haggled over the asking price.
The price would reduce after Sane sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury during the Community Shield.
Pep Guardiola, who had questioned the Germany forward’s mentality on occasion, named Sane among the travelling party for recent trips to Chelsea and Newcastle but left him on the bench.
Sane is flying to Bavaria to link up with Hans-Dieter Flick’s squad, but cannot play for Bayern until next season.
It is understood Bayern, who had been preparing for Sane’s arrival with social media content last week, offered players as part of the proposed deal last summer.
City have inserted a 10 per cent sell-on clause, while Sane will earn around £350,000 a week, securing a significant uplift on the wages on offer to renew his contract in the North West.
