Sandro Wagner to join Bayern in 'next two weeks' - Hoffenheim boss
From ESPN - December 7, 2017

MUNICH -- Germany international striker Sandro Wagner is closing in on a return to his boyhood club Bayern Munich, according to Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann.

The German champions have been in talks with Hoffenheim about signing their former youth-team product for a number of weeks. However, president Uli Hoeness said recently the two clubs remained "miles apart on the transfer fee."

But Nagelsmann, 30, revealed on Thursday that progress had been made, saying: "I expect a deal to be done in the next two weeks."

Wagner joined Bayern at the age of nine, making his Bundesliga debut in 2007. However, the Munich-born striker failed to make the breakthrough, becoming a journeyman with spells at Duisburg, Bremen, Kaiserslautern and Hertha Berlin -- before rediscovering his best form at Darmstadt in 2015.
