Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich has unveiled former Manchester City winger Leroy Sané.
The Germany international has signed a five-year deal until 30 June 2025 and is expected to join his new teammates next week.
In a statement, Bayern noted: “FC Bayern Munich have signed Leroy Sané from Manchester City, the Germany international’s club since 2016. The 24-year-old has put his name to a five-year contract until 30 June 2025 and will start preparing for the upcoming season in Munich next week.”
On his part, the player 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.”
FC Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added: “We’re very happy to welcome Leroy Sané 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 Salihamidžić on successfully concluding the transfer.”
It will be the second time Sane will be featuring in the Bundesliga after a stint with Schalke in the 205/16 season where he scored 13 goals before moving to Man City.
With City, the player won the Premier League title twice, the FA Cup, three League Cups and two Community Shields after scoring 39 goals in 135 competitive matches.
