Lewandowski responds to rumours of Sane joining Bayern Munich

Robert Lewandowksi has suggested he believes Leroy Sane could help take Bayern Munich to the next level should the winger join the German giants when the transfer market re-opens.

The Manchester City star is believed to be wanting to quit the Etihad at the end of the season in order to secure a return to the Bundesliga, four years after to moving to England from Schalke in a deal worth around £37million.

And he has made no secret of his desire to move to the Allianz Arena after missing out on a switch there last summer, and has reportedly agreed on a five-year contract with the club.

However, City are reluctant to let him leave for anything less than their asking price, while Bayern had been hoping to do a cut-price deal and made an opening offer of just €40million

That bid seemed to anger the reigning Premier League champions, with stories emerging that they are prepared to risk losing Sane on a free in 2021 rather than do business with the German outfit this year.

That has not deterred Munich, though, who continue to pursue their interest in the 24-year-old and are hopeful of finalising a transfer in the coming months.

Lewandowski has now added more fuel to the fire by praising Sane’s talents and stating he would be a good signing for ‘Die Roten’.

Speaking to Goal, the Polish striker said: “There is a lot of speculation. I can only say that he is a great player with great skills who can harmonise very well with his team-mates.

 

 

“Not just in the Premier League or the Champions League, we’ve already seen what he could do at Schalke. He could certainly help us find new solutions in our game.”

Sane has impressed since signing for the Citizens, scoring 39 and assisting 45 goals in 134 appearances and winning the Premier League’s Young Player of the Year in 2017/18.

He hasn’t featured in the current campaign after suffering a serious anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in the Community Shield clash with Liverpool at Wembley last August, just a week before the season kicked-off.
