Bayern Munich have reportedly finally agreed personal terms worth £16.5million a year with Manchester City forward Leroy Sane.
The Bundesliga champions have been pursuing Sane all summer following the departures of both club greats Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery at the end of the 2018-19 season.
According to Sky Sports in Germany, Bayern representatives spoke with the German international in London and agreed to his wage demands to make one of the biggest transfers of the window edge a step closer.
Man City are thought to value Sane, who arrived at the Etihad Stadium for £37million from Schalke in 2016, at £145million so it’s likely negotiations between the two clubs will go down to the wire.
The 23-year-old has travelled to Wembley with the City squad ahead of this afternoon’s Community Shield clash against Liverpool, but it’s unclear whether Pep Guardiola plans to start him.
He’s scored 39 goals in 100 starts for the back-to-back Premier League champions and has played a major part in the club’s dominance under Guardiola, but it seems he’s ready to represent his homeland’s biggest team.
