Bayern München have completed the signing of German international Leroy Sané from Manchester City.
The winger joins the German champions on a five-year deal for a reported fee of just under €50 million.
"FC Bayern is a great club with big goals - and these goals suit me as well," Sané said in a statement and added:
"I'm looking forward to the new challenge and can't wait to train with the team. I know [Bayern coach] Hansi Flick from the U21 national team, we had a very good relationship there. I want to win as many trophies as possible with FC Bayern, and the Champions League is the top priority."
FC Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge commented:
"We're very happy to welcome Leroy Sané to FC Bayern. He is an outstanding player who has proven his qualities over the past few years, especially in the national team. Our goal is to gather the best German players at FC Bayern and the signing of Leroy emphasises this goal. I would like to congratulate [Bayern sporting director] Hasan Salihamidžić on successfully concluding the transfer."
Sané made the switch to England from Schalke 04 for €52 million in 2016 and went on to make 135 appearances for Manchester City with 39 goals and 45 assists to his name.
