Reliable and respected German football journalist Raphael Honigstein has confirmed Bayern’s interest in Manchester City’s Leroy Sane.

In a report for Unibet, Honigstein confirms that the Bundesliga champions are hoping to seal a deal for the German winger this summer.

Sane has seen his long-term future at City thrown into doubt in recent weeks as he is yet to sign a new deal with the club.

Add to that concerns about his relationship with manager Pep Guardiola, there have been suggestions that he could be moved on this summer.

Honigstein adds that the player’s representatives are aware that City could cash in on the player now.

Bayern are in desperate need of a new winger following the summer departures of both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

Eager to rejuvenate their attack, the German international is viewed as the perfect fit as the Bavarian outfit try to become Europe’s elite once again.


Is it the right time for Sane to move on?
