Leroy Sane has completed a 5-year deal with German Champions Bayern Munich worth £55m, the club announced on their official website.
The 24-year-old who missed out on most of last season due to a serious knee ligament injury, fell out with Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola and refused to commit his long-term future with the Cityzens.
Sane played just 24 minutes of football this season and it was due to the extension of the season because of the outbreak of the deadly Covid-19 otherwise he would’ve missed out on all matches.

Speaking after signing the deal, Sane said: “FC Bayern is a great club with big goals – and these goals suit me as well. 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.”
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern CEO added: “We’re very happy to welcome Leroy Sane to FC Bayern. 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 Salihamidzic on successfully concluding the transfer.”
