Bayern Munich chief Hoeness confirms move for Man City star Sane
Bayern Munich are working on a deal to sign Manchester City forward Leroy Sane, president Uli Hoeness has revealed.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a departure from City after playing a reduced role in their treble-winning campaign, starting 30 of his 47 appearances in all competitions.
German champions Bayern have emerged as the top candidates to sign Sane after seeing star attackers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery leave.
Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic was asked about reports suggesting the Bavarian outfit are chasing the former Schalke player and did not dismiss the possibility.
“I don’t comment on names,” he said when quizzed on Sane, but added that a few more signings are expected this summer as Hoeness has given a €200 million transfer budget, according to Sport Bild .
“We will try to do something for the new season, so we must also clarify how much money we have available for it,” he added.
But Hoeness has since clarified that the Bundesliga champions are already advancing on their interest.
