Bayern Munich have opened talks with Manchester City for £90million Leroy Sane.

According to The Mirror, The Bundesliga champions’ Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic is leading negotiations as the club look to get their player as he has been a prime target since the start of the summer.

Sane has been a target for the Bavarian club after Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben both left the club at the end of the contracts. Earlier this summer Bayern balked at City’s £90million valuation for 23-year-old German international Sane.

Sane was a big part of Manchester City’s Premier League winning campaign last season contributing to a total of 20 goals.

Niko Kovac (Head Coach) has been stated as saying

We all know that Leroy Sane is our dream player. The public knows that, we know that.

You can see that the transfer is not easy. But I know that our people are working very hard to make it happen. We will do everything to realise this transfer.”

The Bundesliga Champions will be eager to finish the move for the player but a deal seems to being stalled as Guardiola wants Sane to stay.

Sane completed a move from FC Shalke 04 in August 2016 and has made 133 appearances in all competitions. His record is very good and he has scored 39 goals (25 in the Premier League) and has made 45 assists (31 in the Premier League).

Sane would make the first team of most top 4 sides in Europe and if an agreement can be made with the German champions then he will be a top class addition to the team.
