Bayern Munich confirm interest in Leroy Sane

Bayern Munich’s pursuit of German international Leroy Sane has passed from rumor to reality: club president Uli Hoeness confirmed to the Suddeutsche Zeitung on Thursday, “We are working on this personnel matter.”

Kicker  reported Bayern’s interest in Sane on Monday. Bild reported on Tuesday that Hoeness wants to sign Sane to make Bayern’s wingers the same as the German national team’s — a new FC Deutschland. 

And just yesterday Robert Lewandowski praised Sane as a “super player with great qualities and great potential... a player who can immediately take us higher, who improves the team.”

Hoeness’ comment all but guarantees that Bayern’s interest in Sane is very, very serious. It is reported that Pep Guardiola would like to move on from Sane, and Sane’s only other interest, besides staying in City, is Bayern Munich. 

The move makes sense both for him, as a German superstar in the making, and for Bayern itself, as the club has yet to sign an offensive player in connection with its roster renewal.

The only question is the price. Hoeness said recently that Bayern would not spend over €80 million on any new transfer, but Sane might just be the one player for which Hoeness would change his mind. 

The combination of qualities that Sane possesses,German, young, already an established Germany star, and supremely talented are unique. 

And his coach, Pep Guardiola, is a very highly regarded former coach and friend of the club.

The stars just might align between Sane and Bayern Munich this time around.
