Leroy Sane, who has “enjoyed” a long spell on the sidelines due to injury is getting ready to return but not planing on doing so with manchester City. Sane, is reportedly to have been in talks with other potential Clubs and Bayern Munich tops the list. Bayern Munich who are also very much interested received the talk invitation after being informed that transfer target Leroy Sane has changed agents as the winger continues to seek a move away from Manchester City. He was formerly signed to David Beckham’s agency, but a rumored misunderstanding due to contract has lead to the disbandment. Sane was on the brink of joining Bayern in the summer but was disappointed as a result of a damaged knee ligaments against Liverpool in the Community Shield in August.
Due to injury, Bayern Munich were forced to withdraw their initial interest. The injury, has kept Sane out of action for the whole season thus far and the lad is said to be frustrated. If the deal went through it is reported that Bayern Munich were willing to pay roughly around £100million to sign the German international but City were demanding £150m.
However, with Sane now back in training and nearing a return to action, Bayern Munich is said to be watching the lad and ready to reignited their talks and interest in Sane. According to German media outlets, Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is still working on the deal.
Sane switched representatives from David Beckham owned agency DB Venture to LIAN Sports this week and Salihamidzic was informed of the change.Reports suggest, Bayern will not move to sign the 23-year-old this month but foundations are being laid to sign Sane in the summer.
“It is not an issue for the winter window,” Salihamidzic said when probed on the latest update last week. Sane’s Etihad Stadium contract expires in June 2021 and he has rebuffed City’s offers of an extension.
Pep Guardiola has been open about the club’s eagerness for Sane to stay but admitted he cannot force the forward into that decision.
