German international Leroy Sané, who has played for Manchester City since 2016/17, has signed a five-year contract with Bayern Munich, the German club announced today.
“The 24-year-old signed a five-year contract, until 30 June 2025, and will begin preparing for the 2020/21 season in Munich next week,” the club said in a statement that it recently secured its eighth consecutive German title.
The Bavarians did not announce the amounts involved, but according to the German press, Leroy Sané may have cost about 50 million euros, to which the British media add 10 for objectives.
“He is an exceptional player, who has proven his qualities over the past few years, particularly in the German team. Our goal is to bring together the best German players at Bayern and Leroy’s signing underlines that goal, ”said Bayern Munich ‘boss’ Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
For his part, Sané, who had only one more year of contract with the citizens, said he knew the Bayern coach, Hansi Flick, from the “national under-21 team” and had “a good relationship” with him.
“I want to win as many trophies as possible with Bayern and the Champions League [que os bávaros não vencem desde 2012/13] it is the absolute priority, ”said the 24-year-old, who has never won the main continental club competition.
Leroy Sane, who barely played in the 2019/20 season due to injury, has served the last five seasons at Manchester City, which, in 2016, ‘discovered’ him at Schalke 04, the club where he trained.
