With Mohamed Salah’s probable departure from Liverpool looming, Leroy Sane has surfaced as a recent target.
His contract with Bayern is set to expire at the end of the following season, exposing the German club as they strive to extend his stay.
Despite Bayern’s denial of contract negotiation stalls, they must remain wary of other clubs eyeing the 27-year-old winger.
Christian Falk reports a surprising move by Manchester City, rejoining the fray with Jurgen Klopp’s team in the bid to bring Sane back to the Premier League.
Manchester City’s recent acquisitions, including Jeremy Doku from Rennes, have strengthened their flanks after losing Cole Palmer and Riyad Mahrez to Chelsea and Al-Ahli, respectively. Falk suggests this increased competition reduces the likelihood of Sane returning to Guardiola’s squad.
Sane boasts an impressive track record, securing five league titles in the last six seasons—twice with Manchester City in 2017-18 and 2018-19, and a consecutive three times with Bayern Munich since his arrival in the 2020-21 season.
The next match for Sane will be with Bayern against Koln on November 24, as they aim to keep pace with the surprising league leaders, Bayer Leverkusen.
This season he played in total 11 times for 957 minutes for Bundesliga.
Leroy Sané scored 7 goals for FC Bayern München. He procured 6 assists. He received 1 yellow card and no red cards.
