Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has hinted that Leroy Sane will arrive this summer and possibly Kai Havertz too.
Bayern Munich has developed a habit of snapping up the best young talent from not only other Bundesliga sides but from around the world.
The Bavarian giants use their financial muscle.
They prize away from the proverbial minnows the finest prodigious talents on offer once they have done the hard work of smoothing out the rough edges.
Consider, Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Robert Lewandowski, and most recently Alexander Nubel to name but a few.
If what former club president Uli Hoeness is saying has any truth to it this summer will be no different.
It sounds like he must think Leroy Sane from Manchester City is as good as a done deal.
According to Goal, he said:
“I believe that we are on the threshold of a relatively great generation.”
“When I think that we managed to extend with Manuel Neuer, and we have Joshua Kimmich, Niklas Sule, Robert Lewandowski, and hopefully David Alaba and Thiago Alcantara also agreeing to contracts.”
“I also hope with Leroy Sane, with Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry, a young, developable team.”
“I can imagine, if everything goes well, that a new era is just beginning at Bayern Munich.”
Kai Havertz is perhaps one of the brightest talents in Germany if not the football world right now.
He is almost certain to leave Bayer Leverkusen this summer. He has already hinted himself that Bayern is a favorable move for him.
“We would certainly like to have Kai Havertz.”
“But at the moment, it is so that one does not know exactly what the economic future of all football is.”
“I would like to see him in Munich from a sporting perspective, but as of today I honestly cannot imagine it, although I would like to see it.”
Bayern Munich is a well-oiled football machine and business. The financial climate is not likely to change much for the Bavarians. So who will they bring in?
