Bayern Munich has agreed to sign Leroy Sane of Manchester City for £54.8 million in a five-year contract.

The Bundesliga champion will pay an entry fee of 44.7 million pounds (49 million euros) for the 24-year-old German winger, plus 10 million pounds (11 million euros), bringing the total to 54.8 million pounds.

The city has also included a 10 percent sales clause in the contract in case the German club sells Sane in the future.

It is expected that Sane will fly to Germany within the next 24 hours to undergo a medical examination.

The agreement was reached after Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola recently announced that the club would not sign a replacement for the winger, as he has numerous options available to him to play in this position.

he said: “We have enough good players up front. Gabriel (Jesus) can play on the left side, Phil Foden can play on the left side, we have Raheem (Sterling) there. We have great, talented players in the front row.

“Most of them are in good health, like Phil, Riyad (Mahrez), Gabriel, Raheem, they can play pretty regularly over a long period of time, they are so stable in terms of injury situations. I think maybe we have other priorities.

“And I don’t know if the situation for the clubs will change economically and financially after the coronavirus. I don’t know what the situation is. We’ll see at the end of this season.”

Leroy Sane will leave Etihad after 192 appearances for City and 52 goals for the club in all competitions.
