After a long and complicated process, finally Bayern Munich managed to hook the young German winger, Leroy Sane from Manchester City.
Bayern Munich has actually been trying to bring Leroy Sane since the transfer market last summer.
The plan, concerned will be projected as a substitute for Arjen Robben. The player who has been the club’s mainstay for the past decade has indeed left Bayern Munich because his contract expired last summer.
German media at that time believed that Leroy Sane was actually willing to move closer to the Allianz Arena, only that the player suffered a severe injury at the start of the season. The injury forced the player to pull over, and certainly could not move the club.
This made Bayern Munich’s efforts finally end up useless, but they did not necessarily give up to repeat a similar effort. In the end, after a long struggle, Die Roten’s efforts paid off.
Yes, Bayern managed to get Leroy Sane’s service officially, where the news was confirmed by the Club’s CEO, Karl-Heinz Rumenigge.
“We are very pleased to welcome Leroy Sane at FC Bayern. He is an extraordinary player who has proven his quality in recent years, especially in the national team, ”
“Our goal is to gather the best German players at FC Bayern and Leroy’s purchase confirms this goal. I want to congratulate Hasan Salihamidzic who successfully completed this transfer, “Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club’s official website.
So far, it is not yet known what the range of costs incurred by Bayern to buy a 24-year-old player. But according to a number of reports, Manchester City took it off with a tag of 55 million euros.
To be sure, Leroy Sane agreed on a five-year contract at the Allianz Arena, which will make it last until 2025.
Leroy Sane’s contribution to Manchester City’s success in winning two successive Premier League titles cannot be underestimated either. He played 61 matches in the last two seasons on the League stage and scored 20 goals in between.
In addition, Sane also contributed to other titles such as the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and FA Community Shield.
