Sané only played 11 minutes of competition for the Guardiola and De Bruyne team this season, after tearing off his cruciate ligaments from his right knee in the English Super Cup last summer.
Only on June 22, the German international made his comeback in the final of the 5-0 against Burnley.
The son of a Senegalese football international and a German Olympic gymnast, the quick-witted Sané made his debut as a pro at Schalke in 2014. In 2016, he signed with City for 5 years until 2021.
Last summer, the call of the hometown rang and there was almost a deal with Bayern. His serious injury threw a spanner in the works. Last month, Sané ignored a City contract proposal, now he would not let Bayern go.
He wore the City shirt 135 times, good for 39 goals and 45 assists. He won the Premier League 2 times, 1 FA Cup, 2 League Cups and 2 Supercups.
“I’m looking forward to this new challenge and can’t wait to train with the team,” Sané beamed at Bayern’s website. “Bayern is a top team with big goals. Those goals suit me.”
“I remember Hansi Flick (Bayern’s coach, ed.) From the national team, we have a very good relationship. I want to win as many trophies as possible with Bayern. At the very top is the Champions League.”
