Sport says that Barcelona was looking into ways to sign the 28-year-old, but the former Manchester City player has chosen to stay put instead of moving to Barcelona. The German international’s current deal ends in 2025, but he seems to be close to signing a new one with the Bundesliga team.
THE LARGER PICTURE
Before leaving City in 2020, Sane showed flashes of his brilliance. Since then, he has become a key player for Bayern and is one of the first names on the teamsheet. It’s clear that he has raised his game because other top European teams are interested in taking him on.
WHAT DID YOU KNOW?
In the past few weeks, Sane is said to have changed managers, which has led to rumours that he is moving. But the story says that his choice to fire Fali Ramadan and hire Christian Schmid instead, who works for Bayern teammate Jamal Musiala, may be very important in this deal with Bayern.
Bayern and Sane are likely to keep talking off the pitch in the coming weeks and months. If you look at the Bundesliga table, the German giants are in second place. Next weekend, they play the league winners, Bayer Leverkusen.
