Bayern Munich have sent a negotiator out to discuss a potential move for a Manchester City winger, while Real Madrid have joined Liverpool and Manchester United in chasing a Leicester City star, according to Wednesday’s European papers.
BAYERN CHIEF JETS OUT TO DISCUSS SANE DEAL
Bayern Munich sent a senior negotiator out to discuss a potential deal to bring Manchester City winger Leroy Sane to the club, according to reports.
Sane, who is currently out with a knee injury suffered in early August, was heavily linked with a move to the German champions throughout the summer but no deal could be reached between the two clubs.
According to SportBild, however, Bayern have not given up hope of striking a deal with City and sent Giovanni Branchini, one of their chief negotiators, out to meet Sane’s advisor, David Gardner, to discuss a move.
The report adds that Sane remains keen on the move despite his current injury problems and the fact that Bayern will offer an increased salary to what the English champions can is said to be adding interest about the deal.
SportBild also reports that Sane, despite being in negotiations with City over a new deal, has not yet accepted any new proposals.
