Bayern is expected to make an initial payout of EUR 49 million and City could get another EUR 11 million depending on Sane ‘s successes with the German champions, the source told The Associated Press. The source was speaking on condition of anonymity, citing stories from Uk newspapers, as terms of the agreement were not made official.

The 24-year-old Germany international, who joined City from Schalke in 2016, only had one year remaining on his contract in Manchester.

“We’ve got a lot of good players up front,” said Guardiola. “Gabriel (Jesus) will play on the left-hand side, (Phil) Foden on the left. We just got Raheem (Sterling). Some are in good shape. I believe we probably have other goals. I don’t know if the Club’s financial position will improve after the coronavirus. We’ll see that at the end of the season.

Although the Bundesliga season concluded last weekend with Bayern defending the title, the Premier League is going until the end of July after three months’ interruption due to the coronavirus pandemic.

City and Bayern both stay in the Champions League, which is due to resume in August with the last-16 second legs. Sane wouldn’t be able to play for Bayern in the European competition even if the deal was completed by then.
