Man City agree to sell Sane to Bayern after winger refuses contract extension

Leroy Sane will in matter of days complete a switch from Manchester City to Bayern Munich as both clubs have come to agreement.

The 24-year-old winger, whose City contract was to end in 2021, had refused to extend his contract with Premier League side, according to manager Pep Guardiola.

He joined City from Schalke in 2016 for £37m and has won two Premier League titles with the club.

Bayern and Manchester City have reportedly agreed to make the transaction for an initial fee of about £44.7m in a deal that could rise to £54.8m.
