Bayern Munich and Manchester City nearing agreement on Leroy Sané

Manchester City and Bayern Munich are close to an agreement over the transfer of Leroy Sane after a deal fell through last summer due to an injury to the German.

The unending transfer saga of Leroy Sané may at last, and for the second time, be lurching to the finish line. Two different reports now state that Bayern Munich and Manchester City are nearing an agreement on a transfer fee that would finally allow the coveted German winger to move to Munich.

The Telegraph reported earlier today that Bayern was deliberating an offer of £50 million (€56.5 million). According to them, Bayern’s front office thinks they may have to spend a total package of €65 million to clinch the deal.

That partly squares with the other report, from kicker (print edition via Transfermarkt). Kicker states that the clubs are just “€10 million apart.” Bayern supposedly wants to spend €40 million, while City wants €50 million. Sané has already reportedly agreed to personal terms for a five-year contract with the Rekordmeister.

Whatever the transfer fee ultimately proves to be, and whenever this interminable saga comes to a close, the final fee may be nearly half what Bayern was ready to pay a year ago — but an ACL injury, an ending contract, a global pandemic, and own Sané’s determination to leave have brought his once astronomical market value at least relatively back to earth.
