Perisic poised to join Bayern, reveals Kovac

Bayern Munich have tried to sign Sane this summer and reportedly made more than one bid to City, who want the 23-year-old to commit his long-term future to the club.

"Ivan will help us immediately with his many years of worldwide experience", said Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.

He said in July on the back of a 1-0 International Champions Cup defeat to Manchester United: "We're working with him, but his response isn't positive".

The Inter Milan star was spotted in Munich for a medical ahead of his move, Bild report, and is completing the formalities before a transfer that was reported to have been for a €5M loan and €20M buy option. FC Bayern are one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

"I am sure that Ivan will integrate quickly as he already knows the Bundesliga and Niko Kovac", added Salihamidzic.

At Bayern, he will provide much-needed reinforcement on the wing following the departure of veteran club icons Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery at the end of last season.

While the Nerazzurri have no position for Perisic within their ranks, Bundesliga champions Bayern are happy to open their doors.

Perisic put pen to paper on his new contract last night after completing a medical earlier on Monday.
