Bayern Munich have agreed on a deal to sign winger Leroy Sane from Manchester City, according to various media reports in Germany and England on Tuesday .
The 24 -year – old was reportedly close to signing for Bayern last year before suffering a knee injury .
Sky Sports and the BBC say the two clubs have agreed a fee of £ 54 . 8 million ( 59 .97 million euros , $67 .36 million ) , with German daily Bild reporting a fee of “at least 50 million euros ”.
Bild said Sane will sign a five -year contract at the German champions , with the transfer fee far lower than the 100 million euros mentioned last year .
Sane ’s contract at Manchester City is due to run out in June 2021.
Sports magazine Kicker said a deal is “near”.
The Germany international made his first Premier League appearance of the season as a substitute against Burnley last week .
He has scored 39 goals in 135 matches in all competitions for City since joining from Bundesliga club Schalke in 2016.
