The Telegraph claims Manchester City have slapped a whopping £137 million price tag on German winger Leroy Sane, amid continued interest from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
Reports in Germany suggest Bayern are preparing a bid of around £73m for the former Schalke man, but that is set to be swiftly rejected upon arrival at the Etihad Stadium. The report says that according to senior sources, City have neither received any formal bids for Sane, nor had any notification from the player that he wants to leave the Premier League champions.
The development comes following comments from Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac, who this week said he was “confident” a deal was close. Bayern Munich, though, tweeted that reports in kicker that Sane had committed to Bayern were incorrect, contradicting their manager.
Pep Guardiola remains hopeful that Sane will sign an extension to his City contract, which expires in the summer of 2021, but has said if the Germany international wants to leave, he can.
