"It looks like it but it's not already done. There are some little issues but it looks like he (Sane) is going to go to Munich," Guardiola said, as quoted by Eurosport.

"We wish him all the best and thanks for our years together.

According to Sport Bild, Sane has agreed to join Bayern on a five-year deal, and will make the move for a fee of less than €50 million (R971 million). It is also claimed that the 24-year-old is on his way to Munich for a medical and will not be part of City's UEFA Champions League squad for the remaining games of this season's competition.
