Bayern Munich are in talks with Manchester City to sign Leroy Sane, according to the Daily Record.
They’re reporting that the Bundesliga champions have been granted permission to meet Sane’s representatives in a move to sign the player they tried to sign in 2016 before they were beaten to his signature… by City.
Bayern have cooled their interest in Lille forward Nicolas Pepe and instead are looking to make Sane their main man. City are reportedly pragmatic about the future of the 23-year-old Sane, with the star so far refusing to sign a contract extension before it runs out in 2021. City aren’t prepared to see Sane run his contract down, while the player himself is looking for more first-team football.
Any sale of Sane could help fund Pep Guardiola’s summer spend as he looks to bring four players into the club.
