Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeneß plans to raid Manchester City in the summer for winger Leroy Sané, and ‘does not feel‘ that it will take more than the reported fee of €100 million to do so, according to Christian Falk of SPORTBILD.
The Bundesliga champions made a very public move for the former Schalke man in the previous transfer window, with some suggesting the six-month injury layoff, suffered during the Community Shield victory over Liverpool, scuppered any chances of a return to Germany.
However, Christian Falk claims Bayern Munich are ready to try their luck again, with club president Uli Hoeneß reportedly saying that he ‘does not think‘ that the Bavarians will need to pay more than the €100 million that they have set as a budget for themselves in the window.
Manchester City may not look on the fee proposed by Hoeneß generously, as a more reserved role in the 2018/19 season will do nothing to expel the memory of the 23-year-old’s superb Young Player of the Year-winning campaign the year before.
Bayern Munich may point to Leroy Sané’s contract being quickly run down as a reason for the Citizens to let him go on the cheap, but the Premier League champions are unlikely to part with one of their star assets so easily.
