Manchester City are optimistic Leroy Sane will snub any advances from Bayern Munich,’ according to reports.


Sane has been linked to the Bundesliga champions all summer long with the duo of Ribery and Robben leaving the club.

The fans and players have not hidden their admiration for the speedy German player who struggled to nail a place in Pep’s starting XI towards the tail end of last season,

Bayern have already splashed the cash this summer to recruit Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez as they aim to mount a serious challenge on multiple fronts next season.

However, reports from the Daily Mirror confirmed Sane will rather remain at the Etihad than return to his home country.

It’s claimed that Sane ‘indicated he had no desire to join Bayern’ when he returned to pre-season training last week and that ‘City chiefs believe Sane wants to stay with the club.’

However, Guardiola ‘will not stand in his way if he wants to leave – and Bayern meet the asking price.’

On the other hand, Nicolas Otamendi ‘wants to return Mestalla and play for Valencia.’

The Argentine had been expected to leave City this summer following a reduced game time last season.
