Perisic set to sign for Bayern Munich

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 long-term experience at the worldwide top level".

The 30-year-old has always been linked with a move away from Serie A side Inter and is expected to join Bayern on an initial season-long loan move, with an option to make the deal permanent next year.

Conte has already signed Romelu Lukaku from United up top, and is also close to brining in former Manchester City star Edin Dzeko, so the writing was on the wall for Ivan Perisic.

The Croatia worldwide underwent medical tests on Monday morning in Munich with Bayern, who are desperately seeking reinforcement in the wide areas.

"I am very happy to be back in Germany".

Bayern will become Perisic's third Bundesliga club, having previously played for Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg.

He also played under Bayern coach Niko Kovac during the latter's two-year spell as Croatia coach between 2013 and 2015.

The Bundesliga holders were in the market for a new wide player following the summer departures of long-serving wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.

Perisic returns to the Bundesliga after four seasons in Italy.
