The German has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich
Manchester City’s Leroy Sane looks to be heading a shocking towards a shock exit from the Etihad Stadium. The pacy winger who registered 42 assists in two seasons could be returning to its homeland Germany this summer. Bayern Munich have a serious interest in Sane and have named the German as the successor of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery. It seems Manchester City have revealed the price of Leroy Sane.
Manchester City have slapped a £100 million price tag on Leroy Sane.
Despite hitting double figures in scoring both 10 goals and 10 assists this term, the winger has not done enough to convince the boss of a place in the starting line-up on a consistent basis which has alerted Bundesliga giants Bayern who look to be lining a £70 million bid.
However, the Premier League Champions see Sane as a different alternative to what they have in Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling and know to sell a prize asset to a top side may hamper there future Champions League hopes.
Earlier this week, Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said Leroy Sane would be Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery’s successor if he decided to leave Manchester City for the Bundesliga champions.
He said, ” You shouldn’t forget that he still has two years contract and that Manchester City doesn’t just sell their players because they need to.
This will be difficult. But I think that the player has to be convinced to have the joy for playing here at Bayern. He would be the successor of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery which is very interesting. As a player, this would be a good incentive I think.”
France internationals and World Cup winners Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard have already agreed to join Bayern in the off-season, however, James Rodriguez could be set to leave Munich.
It’s shocking to see Guardiola willing to sell a talented winger like Leroy Sane. The German hasn’t been a regular player for City this season and would be seeking assurances for a regular spot in playing XI from Guardiola. If Guardiola still prefers Mahrez and Bernando Silva the Sane might opt to go back to its native land.
