Source MailOnline-Bayern Munich finally managed to seal a deal to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City for almost £55million last night.

Sane had already agreed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga champions after making it clear his future lay away from the Etihad Stadium.

In what may prove one of the most expensive transfers of the summer, City accepted an offer worth an initial £45m plus an extra £10m in additional clauses for the winger, who had entered the final year of his contract.

The 24-year-old was valued at more than £130m last summer as the two clubs haggled over the asking price before an anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained in the Community Shield halted the deal.

Sane has played just once since then, an 11-minute cameo during last week’s rout against Burnley.

Pep Guardiola, who had questioned the Germany international’s mentality on occasion, named Sane among the travelling party for recent long trips to Chelsea and Newcastle but left him on the bench.

Sane is flying to Bavaria to link up with Hans-Dieter Flick’s squad but cannot play for Bayern until next season.

It is understood Bayern, who had been preparing for his arrival with social media content as early as last week, offered players as part of the proposed deal last summer.

City have inserted a 10 per cent sell-on clause, while Sane will earn around £350,000 a week, securing a significant uplift on the wage on offer to renew his contract in the North West.

Guardiola claimed last week that he is not planning on landing a replacement and views youngster Phil Foden as an option to play wide.

Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling have excelled in the front three, while Gabriel Jesus impressed from the left in victory at Real Madrid.

City’s problems have lay in defensive areas as they surrendered the title to Liverpool and Guardiola wants at least one central defender this summer.

They will look to purchase two should there be a departure.
