Leroy Sane Transfer From Manchester City To Bayern Munich Agreed
Leroy Sane is set to leave Manchester City this summer and join Bayern Munich, with a report in Germany claiming the deal between the two sides has already been agreed.

Sane moved from Schalke, where he'd been in the academy, to Manchester in 2016 for an initial £37 million, with the fee reportedly rising to £46.5 million based on incentives.
The German was an integral part of City's team when they reached a record 100 points to win the league in the 2017/18 season, winning the PFA Young Player of the Year, but was somehow left out of his country's World Cup squad, with Joachim Low's side knocked out of the Group Stages.
He was again important last season as Pep Guardiola's side pipped Liverpool to the league title by just one point last season but it was reported he wanted to leave the club last summer.
Bayern, who had bids turned down for Callum Hudson-odoi last year, were interested in signing the 24-year-old to replace Franck Ribery, who left the club for Fiorentina.
However the former Schalke player injured his cruciate ligaments during the Community Shield in August and has missed most of the season, making his first appearance in the league just eight days ago as a substitute in the 5-0 win against Burnley.
With just a year left on his deal City had offered him a new contract but Guardiola confirmed recently that the player rejected the offer.
It is quite the coup for Bayern, one that will particularly annoy rivals Schalke, and means their attacking options will include Sane, Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, Alphonso Davies and Robert Lewandowski next season.
