Leroy Sane officially is a Bayern Munich player. The German club has confirmed that they have signed Sane on a five-year deal from Manchester City. It is believed the deal is worth €50m and could rise to €60m through a series of bonuses. Sane will join up with his new team mates next week to prepare for the new season in the Bundesliga.
“FC Bayern is a great club with big goals – and these goals suit me as well”, Sane said on Bayern’s official website. “I’m looking forward to the new challenge and can’t wait to train with the team. I know Hansi Flick from the U21 national team, we had a very good relationship there. I want to win as many trophies as possible with FC Bayern, and the Champions League is the top priority.”
Sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić is happy to have signed Sane. “We’re delighted Leroy is to be a Bayern player. Leroy is a difference-maker and will strengthen our team with his quality. With Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Comanand Leroy, we’re now even better equipped at a very high level in the wide positions that are important for our game.”
“I would like to thank Manchester City for the trusting and constructive negotiations. I would also like to thank our president and chairman of the supervisory board, Herbert Hainer, who supported us with this transfer right from the start under the difficult circumstances of coronavirus.”
