Manchester City

City ace linked with return home

15th May 2019, 05:12 by Michael Holland

Manchester City are bracing themselves for interest in Leroy Sane, following reports Bayern Munich want to sign him.

The Bavarians are planning a revamp of their squad this summer and are keen to bring in young attacking talent to replace Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, while James Rodriguez is also expected to return to Real Madrid when his loan expires.

The 23-year-old has struggled for form this season and his attitude has been questioned on more than one occasion after he failed nail down a regular place in City's starting eleven.

Talks over a new contract have also stalled and that has kicked off reports suggesting that City could be willing to sell if Bayern came in and made a big enough offer.

City splashed out £37million to sign the German international from Schalke and would be looking to make a significant profit on that figure if they did decide to cash in.

It is thought that Sane would also be open to a move to the Allianz Arena and a return to his homeland, if Bayern firmed up their interest by making a bid.
