Bayern Munich has reportedly made significant progress in signing Leroy Sane from Manchester City.

The upcoming transfer window is set to be crucial for Bayern Munich as they continue to build a young squad. After spending a vast amount of money on defenders last summer, Die Roten is set to focus on improving the attacking department in this window. Leroy Sane is looking likely to be that marquee attacking signing at the moment.

Sane was the primary transfer target for Rekordmeister last summer, but the player suffered a serious injury when the two clubs were trying to negotiate a deal. Since last summer, there has been constant chatter in Germany about Sane moving to Bavaria.

The latest development is a positive one for Die Roten in their pursuit of Sane. According to SportBild, Bayern has agreed to a five-year contract with Sane. The defending German champions will now look to open talks with Manchester City to close the deal.

Sane’s agent spoke to Sport1 earlier today, hinting that his client could be moving to Bavaria in summer. Damir Smoljan has previously insisted that Sane is likely to join Die Roten if he decides to move back to Germany in the future.

“Leroy would be an absolute highlight for Bayern and the Bundesliga, both in human and in football terms.”

“Leroy is a player with ambitions to win the Champions League. He is working very hard on himself for this dream.”

The report from SportBild also insists that Die Roten will be opening negotiations with a base price of €40 million. The mentioned fee is significantly lesser than what they were expected to pay last summer. Man City finds themselves on the weaker side of negotiations as Sane has only one year left on his current deal.

There were suggestions in Germany that Hansi Flick would prefer signing Timo Werner in summer.  Werner has been heavily linked with a move to Bavaria in the past 18 months, but that move is looking unlikely. The German manager is now reportedly convinced about signing Sane from Man City after having a conversation with the winger.

Die Roten has made the right decision about pursuing Sane over Werner. The current squad needs a world-class winger to take the team to the next level. Sane fits like a glove to this squad, so prioritizing him over Werner, who is a number nine, makes sense. Statistically, Sane will also fair much better than Werner on the flanks.

From a financial perspective, a deal for Sane suits Rekordmeister. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the transfer market is set to collapse. It is necessary to look for financially feasible deals in the current market. Sane’s contract situation and the quality he brings on the table makes him an ideal attacker for Die Roten.
