Bayern Munich president, Uli Hoeness, has confirmed the club is working on a deal for Manchester City’s Leroy Sane.
Sane is the club’s number one choice, to replace outgoing veteran duo Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, after Callum Hudson-Odoi’s Achilles injury.
The 23-year-old, who joined City from Schalke for £37million in 2016, made 47 appearances for City in 2018-19, scoring 16 goals.
But only 30 of those games were starts and Sane only completed the full 90 minutes on 16 occasions.
Now, after star striker Robert Lewandowski declared that Sane is “a player who can immediately take us higher, who improves the team”, Hoeness confirmed that they are pushing to land Sane.
“We are dealing with this player,” Hoeness told Suddeutsche Zeitung.
