Manchester City have reached an agreement with Bayern Munich over the sale of Leroy Sane, according to German outlet Bild. Pep Guardiola had previously admitted the winger wanted to leave the Eithad for the Bundesliga giants.
Sane has missed most of the current season with injury but was one of the key players as City won the Premier League and FA Cup last year.
The winger will sign a five-year contract at the German champions.
Guardiola is disappointed that the Germany international will leave the club for Bayern.
He said: “‘I’m so disappointed. When we make an offer, it’s because we want him; he’s got a special quality that is difficult to find.
Despite that form he was not included in the Germany side for the World Cup which left many surprised.
Speculation had already begun that Sane wanted a move to Bayern but that talk was delayed when he suffered a severe injury leaving him out of action for most of this season.
But Bayern will finally get their man when the transfer window opens.
