Bayern Finally Get Their Man
Bayern have been chasing Sane for over a year now. He looked likely to make the move to Germany last summer but a move never came to fruition. The links between the Manchester City winger and the German champions continued into this year and the rumours appeared to be a lot more concrete.

A deal has seemed likely for about a month and now, Romano reports that all is left to finalise the deal is for the paperwork to be completed.
It sounds as though Bayern are getting a good deal too, as the Italian journalist says that they have signed Sane as well as teenage defender Tanguy Kouassi from Paris Saint-Germain all for less than €50 million.
Sane, 24, joined Manchester City in 2016 from Schalke in 2016 and was expected to take the Premier League by storm. He has always been one of the top talents at the club but at a club like City who have so much strength in depth, there was always a chance at least one player was going to feel left out.
At Bayern, meanwhile, he could prove to be a breath of fresh air in the forward line for a club who need to make sure they are at the top of their game to retain the Bundesliga title.
