Man City keep quiet on Sane injury as Bayern conspiracy circulates

Leroy Sane TEAMtalk

Details on the extent of the injury suffered by German winger Leroy Sane during last Sunday’s Community Shield have been curiously scarce, with Bayern president Uli Hoeneß suggesting that Man City may be deliberately withholding information in an attempt to block a potential transfer.

Following the departures of long-time servants Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery in June, Bayern have made it clear all summer long that Leroy Sane is the number one target to replace the talismanic wingers.

City reportedly set a £137 million asking price on the head of Sane, but remained confident in their ability to keep the Germany international at the Etihad for the foreseeable future.

Now Bayern president Uli Hoeneß has waded during an interview with German magazine Kicker as relations between the two clubs have begun to sour.

Hoeneß stated that Bayern only report “facts”, and that reporters would have to “ask the English”.

Kicker (via Sport Witness) say that an announcement on the injury suffered in the challenge with Trent Alexander-Arnold will be made later today – conveniently after the 5pm transfer deadline day cut-off time passes, thereby eliminating any chance of Man City being able to sign a worthy replacement and reducing the chance of a Sane transfer altogether..
