The Bavarians have never hidden their intentions of signing Sane from Man City, a move which was slowed down due to his injury during the Community Shield game against Liverpool.
Photos of the German player surfaced online as he wore his new club’s jersey.
"He is an outstanding player who has proven his qualities over the past few years, especially in the national team.
"Our goal is to gather the best German players at FC Bayern and the signing of Leroy emphasises this goal," the club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.
And while the deal was confirmed this morning, it had not gone through last night, so Bayern had to say sorry to City for their mistake. However both clubs have now confirmed the deal.
Meanwhile Sane will reportedly be paid around £20m in “extras” over his five year stay at Bayern.
Sane will earn around £385,000 per week in wages in Bavaria – which works out around £19.8m per year.
Brazilian star Phillipe Coutinho has reportedly accepted to take a whopping fifty percent cut on his £240k-a-week wages to extend Bayern Munich loan until end of season.
The German club in 2019 paid out an €8.5m loan fee and agreed to take on the 27-year-old’s full salary this season in Germany. He played a total of 75 games for Barcelona scoring 21 goals and provided 11 assists.
