‘Worried This Has Legs’ ‘Don’t Let Him Go Please’ City Fans Concerned By Reports Linking Star With Bundesliga Switch

Bayern Munich will attempt to lure Manchester City winger Leroy Sane away from the club this summer, according to reports in the UK.

The German international has yet to sign a new contract despite his current deal expiring in two years time, and City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain is said to be willing to sell up before his value drops.

Fans on Twitter are sceptical about the accuracy of the story but are hoping that Sane stays:

In addition to the contract situation, it is believed that Sane isn’t entirely happy with his role at City. Manager Pep Guardiola only gave him 21 starts in the league last season, despite the German scoring 10 goals and providing 11 assists.

The 23-year-old is likely to be seeking assurances about his playing time before committing his long-term future. However, with Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez all competing for places on the wings, Guardiola may find it hard to give such guarantees.
