Transfer News: Bayern Munich Offers Leroy Sane Number 10 Shirt

In a bid to seal the deal back to the Bundesliga this summer, German champions, Bayern Munich has added an appealing offer to the proposed Manchester City’s Leroy Sane contract.

mNaija learnt that the current Bundesliga leaders are willing to offer the No.10 shirt worn for a decade by Dutch legend Arjen Robben and currently taken by the on-loan Philippe Coutinho.

Sane’s transfer to Bayern was unable to go through last August due to a serious knee injury he sustained in the Community Shield.

City and Bayern have to agree a deal but the 24-year-old now only has one year left on his contract.

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: “It is well known that I never comment on players who are under contract with other clubs.”

Sane was one of Guardiola’s first signings and has spent almost four years in Manchester.

Guardiola signed the winger from Schalke and while he would like him to stay he admitted earlier this year that he cannot influence the decision.

“It’s a question for Leroy, his agents and the club, I’m not involved in that,” he said.

“What’s important now is that he has to recover well, that’s the most important thing, and after that he knows what we think of him, that we believe in him and after that it depends on him and the club.

“I was the guy who pushed for the club and convinced him to come here even though he didn’t play regularly for Schalke.

“I have no doubts about him and his quality but what I’ve said many times is each one has his own family, desires, dreams and, above that, I cannot do anything else.”
