The perennial Bundesliga champions have made no secret about their desire to add one of Europe’s best young wingers to their ranks. After failing to land Chelsea wonderkid Callum Hudson-Odoi in January, Bayern turned to Manchester City’s jet-heeled number 19 in a transfer saga which seemed to last the entire summer.
But it’s not over yet, even if Sane has missed every game since the Community Shield with a long-term injury.
The Telegraph claims that Bayern are hopeful of landing the former Schalke starlet on the cheap next summer when his contract will only have a year to run, forcing City to substantially drop their staggering £137 million valuation.
And, having failed to convince Sane to sign a new contract, his City team-mates are apparently convinced that his head has been turned and he is now Bayern-bound.
Suggestions that the Premier League champions are interested in signing Real Sociedad’s Spain international Mikel Oyarzabal, who also plays on the left-hand side of attack, certainly suggest that City are planning for life without a man who appears to have grown tired of competing for a place in Pep Guardiola’s star-studded frontline.
