According to Sky Sports, Bayern Munich have finally put off their pursuit of Leroy Sane and have admitted that a deal is unlikely this summer. The German international was linked with a move to Bavaria, but his hefty £100 million might have played a key role behind Bayern’s failed negotiation.
Furthermore, the report claims that Sane hasn’t yet asked for a move away from Etihad so far and sees his future at Manchester City, who are also confident of keeping hold of the youngster beyond this summer. And this could serve a huge boon for manager Pep Guardiola.
Leroy Sane’s spell at Man City so far
Sane initially joined Manchester City in a £45 million move from FC Schalke back in 2016. He enjoyed a promising debut campaign in the Premier League, scoring five goals and providing five assists in 26 matches. But, it was the 2017/18 campaign, where the German international really found his feet in English football.
Indeed, Sane was involved in as many as 25 league goals as the Citizens made a Premier League record by winning the league title by securing 100 points. That being said, the addition of Riyad Mahrez, coupled with the emergence of Bernardo Silva drastically minimised the overall game time for Sane last season.
The 23-year-old mustered only 1,867 minutes of league football, during which he scored ten goals and provided 11 assists, which is not disappointing by any means. However, a player of his calibre certainly deserves more game-time, which is why Sane was linked with a move away from Etihad this summer.
Sane’s prospects at Man City next season
Things could get even tougher for Sane to get regular opportunities at Manchester City next season, with Silva at the top of his game and Kevin de Bruyne back in full fitness. Riyad Mahrez is also lighting up the ongoing African Cup of Nations, notably firing his side into the final with an absolute screamer.
However, the Manchester giants have quite frequently struggled with injuries to their star players. And should that continue next season, Sane will be a more than capable back-up in the wider attacking positions. Besides, in such a long and strenuous schedule of English football, rotations have become a common practice among managers, further asserting his importance to the team.
Staying at Etihad is not suitable for Sane
While Sane’s potential stay at Manchester City will, no doubt, be a massive boost for the club, it might not be the best of options for the player. As iterated earlier, it’s going to get very difficult for the German international to make himself a regular fixture in the first-team next season.
And at this point of his career, it’s rather important for Sane to get regular game-time if he is to become Germany’s main attacking superstar in the years to come. A move to Bayern Munich, in that regard, could have made sense.
The Bavarians have lost both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben this summer and are keen to sign a new winger. Sane, to that end, would have been an ideal partner to Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman in the wider attacking positions. Therefore, it will be interesting to see if there occurs a new twist in this Sane transfer saga as we near the final phase of the summer transfer window in England.
