Bundesliga: Sané probably does not go to Bayern - sports
- Bayern would be willing to pay a large transfer fee for Leroy Sané.
- But the winger of Manchester City apparently prefers to stay in the Premier League.
- This he had indicated after SZ information a few weeks ago.
A last backdoor in courting Leroy Sané left Uli Hoeneß open. "If he wants, that's fine," said the president of FC Bayern on the German national team on the sidelines of the title celebration of basketball players on Sunday. The amount of the transfer fee, which should be in the high eight-digit range, is therefore the minor problems. The bigger one is the attitude of the wingman of Manchester City.
At the weekend, several media reported that Sané did not want to change to Munich. Even after SZ information, the 23-year-old has already said several weeks ago that he would rather not go to Bayern.
Shortly before the Cup final in late May, Hoeness had publicly confirmed that the club is busy with Sané, even then, however, he had pointed out that it should be difficult to complete the transfer. Since then, President Hoeneß and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have repeatedly commented on whether the entire package would be financed at all. So Hoeneß had the beginning of June kicker said, "You have to be a bit skeptical, it's unlikely that it works, it's about sums, they're insane." That a lack of interest Sanés could lead to failure, had Rummenigge in the past week for the first time in the Sport-Bild "A transfer is always a three-party business, first the player has to decide where he sees his future."
The gap in the squad Sané probably almost alone had closed
FC Bayern were already busy with Sané in 2016, but then waived a commitment, as Arjen Robben and Franck Ribéry were still considered set. Also because of this cancellation Sané should still be upset. In the announced transfer offensive of FC Bayern, he would have been the first really big transfer for the offensive this summer.
So far, the club has committed two defensive all-rounder, for 35 million euros from VfB Stuttgart Benjamin Pavard and for the Bundesliga record of 80 million euros Lucas Hernández of Atlético Madrid. In addition comes for three million euros Jann-Fiete Arp from Hamburger SV, but could be more perspective in the trunk force.
Sané would have significantly increased the options in the offensive of Munich. For the three positions behind the only striker Robert Lewandowski coach Niko Kovac then had the choice of Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry, Thomas Mueller and Sané; All four are variable (with Müller visibly feels most comfortable directly behind Lewandowski). The gap in the squad, the seals and Ribéry have left so Sané would probably almost alone closed.
That's another reason why several Bayern players had euphorically promoted how valuable Sané could be for the team. Lewandowski, for example, saw that this could decisively worsen the game. The attacker had repeatedly pointed out that he was occasionally lonely at the front, the loudest after the end of the round of 16 of the Champions League against Liverpool. They are all likely to be a little disappointed now.
