Manchester City is interested in re-signing ex-player Leroy Sane from Bayern Munich, but they are up against Premier League rivals Liverpool.
The 27-year-old German striker joined the Citizens from Schalke in August 2016 and has scored 39 goals in 135 games across all competitions.
After recuperating from a devastating knee injury, Sane joined Bayern in July 2020 and has recently recaptured his greatest form, scoring eight goals and assisting six more in the Bundesliga this season.
According to German sources, City are ready to compete with Liverpool for the winger’s signature, with his current contract at the Allianz Arena set to expire in 2025.
After the acquisition of Jeremy Doku in the summer, Pep Guardiola now has a variety of great alternatives on the flanks, including Folden and Grealish.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp has Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, and Cody Gakpo to select from for Liverpool.
However, a player of Sane’s calibre who is entering his prime years and may be available at a lower cost may be too appealing for both parties.
With Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez leading their respective lines, the 57-cap international’s proven ability to link up with Harry Kane in Bavaria may also draw the managers’ attention.
