Bayern Munich executive chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed the German champions are interested in Manchester City winger Leroy Sane.
“The state of things with Sane is that he will return from his holidays this week,” Rummenigge said. “While on his vacation he didn’t want to have any talks and wanted to think about his personal plans on his future.
“We have to wait to see if something will happen. It is no secret that we are searching for a winger after [long-time stars] Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben left the club — two players that shaped the face of FC Bayern for many years.
“We are in charge and have to wait on how things will develop.”
Bayern manager Niko Kovac also refused to rule out a move for Sane.
“He could help us a lot. We’ve seen his skills with the German national squad and with City as well,” Kovac said. “I have no idea how fast or slowly it might go with Leroy. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has been repeating that, too.
“The market needs a certain spark. If one or a few particular players are sold then everything starts to rotate. Spots are all of a sudden available on rosters, these have to be filled. And so everything takes its course.”
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be excited Bayern Munich are getting closer to signing Sane from Manchester City.
Bayern Munich have been interested in Blues wonderkid Callum Hudson-Odoi and reportedly had four bids for the 18-year-old rejected by Chelsea.
If they complete a move for Sane, Bayern Munich will move on from Hudson-Odoi, which is good news for every Chelsea fan.
