Bayern Munich are looking to sign Manchester City winger Leroy Sane for a cut-price deal according to Manchester Evening News reporter Stuart Brennan.
With the news that FIFA could move the beginning of the summer transfer window until later in the year, it means Sane will be only a matter of months away from the end of his City contract.
Supporters on Twitter are not pleased with how Bayern are going about trying to sign Sane:
I so hope the Club tell Bayern to foxtrot oscar. They’ve behaved appallingly over this. If you want him pay the price otherwise he stays.

It’s all relative. If this is the case then the replacement City purchase will also be a percentage cheaper. 🤷🏻♂️

Wishful Thinking,if he is to be sold Bayern must be last in the queue,think I would sooner he went to Liverpool than Bayern septic club.

The German international looks no closer to signing a new contract at the Etihad Stadium, and with the player now 24 years of age, City will not be entitled any compensation if he were to leave the club at end of his current deal next summer.
The threat of Sane leaving on a free transfer means Bayern will hold all the cards in any potential negotiation. The Bundesliga club's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic and head coach Hansi Flick are reportedly keen for the transfer to go ahead so City will be expecting a bid for the player in the not too distant future.
