Bayern Munich president confirms interest in Man City star Leroy Sane

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoenss has confirmed the club’s interest in Man City winger Leroy Sane.

After an incredible season in 2017/18, which saw Sane win the PFA Young Player of the Year award, he has fallen out of favour with Pep Guardiola this past term.

The 23-year-old was rarely trusted to start in high profile games against tough opposition, with Guardiola often preferring Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva or Riyad Mahrez to him, and he started just three times in the last 12 games of the season.

Despite this Sane still managed to score 16 goals and wrack up 18 assists – his talent is undeniable.

German champions Bayern are looking to rejuvenate their squad this summer having already spent over £100m for defensive duo Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez, but need new wingers to replace the departing Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery.

 

Bayern have been heavily linked with Sane to freshen up their attack and Hoeness said, reported by Suddeutsche Zeitung: “We are dealing with the [Sane’s] people.”

Hoeness also said following the £72m signing of Hernandez from Atletico Madrid that the Bavarian side wouldn’t spend that much on a player again this summer, but it’s difficult to see City accepting anything less for Sane, who still has two years remaining on his contract.
