It will be two huge signings for Bayern after previously announcing deals for French duo Lucas Hernandez (€80m) and Benjamin Pavard (€35m).

After Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben’s departures, Bayern desperately needed to strengthen out wide.

Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry were the only real senior options available, with Alphonso Davies not ready for regular first-team action just yet.

If Bayern sign both Sane and Pepe, they will have more world-class depth on the flanks than arguably any team in world football.

Sane’s career stalled a tad at Manchester City last season, but he still managed to score 10 goals and assist 10 more in his 31 Premier League appearances.

As for Pepe, he was one of Ligue 1’s finest in 2018/19, scoring 22 goals and assisting 11 in his 38 league games.

Pepe can also play as a striker, which will offer Niko Kovac more cover for Robert Lewandowski going into the new season.
