Bayern Munich finally managed to confirm the signing of Leroy Sane from Manchester City. The German giants tried to sign the left winger last summer, but a knee injury ended the transfer saga in 2019. A year later Bayern have finally snapped up Sane in a transfer potentially worth €60m. Bayern director Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is delighted with the signing of Sane.
“We’re very happy to welcome Leroy Sané to FC Bayern”, Rummenigge was quoted by the official Bayern website. “He is an outstanding player who has proven his qualities over the past few years, especially in the national team. Our goal is to gather the best German players at FC Bayern and the signing of Leroy emphasises this goal. I would like to congratulate Hasan Salihamidžić on successfully concluding the transfer.”
Bayern board member and former goalkeeper feels the German show their ambitions by signing a player like Sane. “We’re all delighted we’ve been able to secure Leroy’s signature for FC Bayern Munich. His qualities as a player are undisputed. His speed, his technical quality and his scoring threat make him an absolute top player. With this signing, we have taken another big step towards remaining at the forefront in Europe.”
