Pep Guardiola eyes reunion as former winger sold to Bayern Munich linked with return to team
Manchester City could be set to make a sensational move for former player Leroy Sane this summer, as reported by reputable German newspaper BILD.
The 27-year-old winger left the Etihad Stadium for Bayern Munich in 2020, following a lengthy injury layoff that saw him miss almost the entirety of the 2019/20 season.
As the Premier League leaders enter the period where they are reportedly scouting potential targets for a major summer overhaul, the notion of a reunion with Sane could be a viable option.
BILD reports that officials at Bayern Munich are unhappy with Sane’s performances and are considering the possibility of selling him this summer.
The club is said to have high expectations that players should match their salaries, something which Sane, along with teammate Serge Gnabry, has failed to do in recent games. If both players continue to underperform, the Bundesliga giants will not rule out selling them if a suitable offer comes in.
City boss Pep Guardiola will be aware of Sane’s qualities, having managed the player during his time at the Etihad, and the German’s ability to provide an attacking threat from out wide could prove to be a valuable addition to the squad.
It remains to be seen whether City will make an official move for Sane, but the potential for a reunion between player and club appears to be a genuine possibility, with the summer transfer window set to be an intriguing one for Manchester City fans.
