Liverpool are interested in signing Leroy Sane and as per reports, Manchester City are ready to challenge for this transfer race.
Sane was on City’s books from 2016 till 2020 where he scored 39 goals in 135 appearances after which he was sold to Bayern Munich. He’s currently at the Allianz Arena and as per rumours, Liverpool want to bring him back to the Premier League.
Liverpool will try and bring him on board next summer but according to German outlet Bild, MCFC are also keen to join the bandwagon.
Leroy Sane is under contract with Bayern until 2025 and even though the club’s management has said they will open talks for a new deal it doesn’t look like the German side are going to offer him a new contract. At the end of this season, Sane is going to enter the final year of his deal which means Bayern Munich won’t mind cashing in on him.
Should Man City try and bring back Leroy Sane or should he be allowed to join Liverpool?
Manchester City sold Sane to Bayern in 2020 for a fee an initial fee of around €45 million and his current market value is €75 million. He’s done really well since moving to Germany and this season alone, he’s racked up eight goals along with six assists in 11 league games so Bayern will demand a big transfer fee for the winger.
Liverpool could lose Mo Salah to the Saudi league so it’s perfectly justifiable that Jurgen Klopp wants to bring in the German right-winger but we don’t think MCFC should spend money on the 27-year-old.
Bernardo Silva could be on his way out of City in the summer but even then Pep Guardiola has Phil Foden who can play out on the right wing so it makes no sense for the Cityzens to spend around €50-55 million on Leroy Sane.
If the Bavarians do not open contract talks in the coming months then there’s a big chance he could be sold in the summer but as things stand, Liverpool are a much more realistic destination rather than an emotional return to the Etihad Stadium.
Sane is still 27 years old so paying a good amount of money won’t be a bad option and it makes sense for Liverpool. However, for Manchester City, Pep Guardiola won’t be too keen to bring back someone whom he sold just three years ago.
