“Problematic” Sane would not be good for Bayern

Former Bayern Munich defender Willy Sagnol insists signing Leroy Sane could be a huge mistake by his old club.

Manchester City winger Leroy Sane was linked with a move to Bayern Munich last summer.

However, after sustaining a serious knee injury that saw the German international ruled out for the season the deal was off.

Now that Sane has apparently fully recovered the transfer is back on.

Speaking to RMC as far as five-time Bundesliga winner Willy Sagnol is concerned he feels his old club should steer well clear of a player he describes as problematic.

Sagnol said:

“Sane doesn’t correspond at all to Bayern in terms of his character.”

“He’s someone whose form is very inconsistent and who is very withdrawn.”

“For me, he doesn’t suit the club at all. He’s had a lot of problems at Manchester City and with the national team.”

The retired French international is adamant that the Bavarian giants would be better off spending more money and bringing in Kai Havertz.

“We’re talking about a cost of €80 million.”

“In that case, I would prefer to put another €20m down and sign Kai Havertz.”

Both players are said to be just two of those who are on Hansi Flick’s wanted list this summer.
