In Summary

  • Bayern Munich are "working very hard" to secure their "dream signing" Leroy Sane, according to head coach Niko Kovac
  • Bayern held positive discussions with Sane's representatives earlier this week over a potential move to the Allianz Arena

Bayern Munich are “working very hard” to secure their “dream signing” Leroy Sane, according to head coach Niko Kovac.

Bayern held positive discussions with Sane’s representatives earlier this week over a potential move to the Allianz Arena.

But Manchester City have no interest in selling Sane and are yet to receive an official bid for the Germany winger.

Kovac told Sport Bild: “Our bosses have shown him a clear plan. We are very focused, Leroy knows what to expect here, and when a player with such capacity comes to FC Bayern, he knows his job.

“You can see that the transfer is not easy. But I know that our people are working very hard to make it happen. We will do everything to realise this transfer.

“We all know that Leroy Sane is our dream player. The public knows that, we know that.”

Sane has not expressed a desire to leave this summer and City remain confident that he will agree a new contract despite failing to reach an agreement last season.

The 23-year-old made 46 appearances in all competitions for City during the 2018/19 campaign, scoring 16 goals, but he started just 21 of their 38 Premier League games.

Sane, who joined City from Schalke in 2016, has only two years remaining on his current contract at the Etihad Stadium.
