Bayern Munich have agreed 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 Pound 54.8 million, with German daily Bild reporting a fee of "at least €50 million".

Bild said Sane will sign a five-year contract at the German champions, with the transfer fee far lower than the €100 million 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".

"I think everybody knows if at the end of this season there is an agreement of both clubs, he is going to leave."
