Manchester City forward Leroy Sane has finally sealed a move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for £54.8m.

The Germany winger, who spent four seasons at the Etihad, has agreed a five-year deal at the Allianz Arena.

Sane, 24, had a great spell with City, winning two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, two League Cups and two Community Shields.

He also made 135 appearances for the Manchester club across all competitions, scoring 39 goals and assisting 45.


“We wish Leroy all the best in this new chapter of his career,” said City manager Pep Guardiola.

Meanwhile, forward Sane said on Bayern's official website: "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 (coach) 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."

He then tweeted: "First of all, thank you Citizens. Thanks so much for the great time and all the support over the last four years. It has been a really intense and successful time which I surely won't forget.

"We won many games, scored a ton of goals, broke a couple of records and celebrated seven trophies together. Thanks to all the fans, to the staff and to my team-mates! I will always remember this time with great joy and pride.

"Also thanks to my coach who has made me a better player and has a large share of my PFA Player of the Year award 2018. I've learned a lot and I'm very proud to have been part of this journey."
