The change is finally perfect: According to a media report, Leroy Sané is coming from Manchester City to Bayern. A year ago there was a double transfer fee for the player.
The royal transfer of FC Bayern Munich is apparently perfect. National soccer player Leroy Sané has apparently agreed on a change with the German champions, according to media reports. Accordingly, the outside striker signs a five-year contract in Munich. This is reported by the “Guardian” in England and the “Bild” newspaper, which refers to the environment of ex-Bayern coach Pep Guardiola. The transfer fee for Sané, who was still under contract with Manchester City until 2021, is said to be less than 50 million euros. According to “Guardian” there is a base amount of 45 million euros plus possible surcharges.
FC Bayern could not be reached in the evening to comment. According to dpa information, Sané consultant Damir Smoljan was seen in Munich on Tuesday. He is said to have been in town for talks with the club.
Heavy blow: cruciate ligament tear 2019
Sané had just made his Premier League comeback for City. The 24-year-old contracted a cruciate ligament in August last year. He suffered the injury shortly before the start of the current Premier League season in the Supercup known as the Community Shield. Shortly afterwards, Sané was operated on in Austria.
City coach Pep Guardiola had confirmed last Friday that the German winger had rejected a new contract from City and wanted to leave the club.
Last year, Bayern wanted to sign the lightning-fast striker before the serious injury intervened. At that time, a transfer fee of over 100 million euros was under discussion. At the time of Corona and the short remaining term of the Sané contract in Manchester, a discount was due.
Eligible for new season
Hasan Salihamidzic should therefore present a good deal on Säbener Straße on Wednesday just in time for promotion as Bayern sports director. According to “Bild”, Sané should not become the top earner in the Bayern squad. The ex-Schalke will probably join the team in August. Man City is said to have little interest in Sané contesting the rest of the Champions League season in August. For FC Bayern, however, he would only be eligible to play in the new season.
The Munich transfer activities are already well advanced. On Tuesday, the free transfer Schalke goalkeeper Alexander Nübel completed the medical check in Munich and signed a contract until June 30, 2025. The 18-year-old top talent Tanguy Kouassi from Paris Saint-Germain has already secured.
