Has Manchester City winger Leroy Sane played his final game in the English Premier League? For now, it's sure looking that way. Per a report, the 24-year-old star has negotiated and agreed to a five-year contract with Bayern Munich.
However, City and Bayern are yet to reach a deal for the sale of the German to go back to his native country. Things are in the works as of this writing, though, with Sane ready to make his return home.

Oh my. Sane had been rumored to potentially be leaving the Etihad Stadium last summer, but City's asking price was far too high for the interested parties. Now, Bayern Munich wants to get Sane at all costs. But, how much will they pay?
Early reports indicate a deal for north of 70 million euros could be on the table. However, keep in mind City was asking for way more than 100 million last year. Are they going to slash the price? Not likely.
As for Sane, he unfortunately suffered a serious ACL injury last fall. However, he's been working tirelessly in his rehab and looks set to return to play once the EPL opens back up.
For now, he remains with City, but that could change in the coming months. All signs point to him joining Bayern.
