City talks scheduled to halt Sane’s Bayern move
Widespread reports suggest Manchester City are set for last-ditch talks to try and prevent Leroy Sane from joining Bayern Munich this summer.
It was claimed earlier this week that the Bavarian giants were closing in on the Germany international to fill the void left by the exit of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
The Bundesliga giants were hoping to take advantage of Sane’s contract situation, with talks over a new deal hardly progressing over the past few months.
City executives are said to be annoyed that Bayern president Uli Hoeness and chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have been speaking publicly about signing the former Schalke man when there has been no formal approach and would ask for a fee in the region of £100m to let him leave.
However, they do not want that to happen and will speak to Sane’s representatives next week in the hope of securing his future on terms of around £150,000 per week.
The two-time Premier League winner still has two years left on his current City contract but will probably seek assurances about his playing time before inking any future deal.
