“Robbery” says goodbye to Munich, but Leroy Sane appears to be a prominent successor. The national player could become the king of FC Bavaria.
The coat of arms of Manchester City on the oversized tattoo self-image on his back was painted by Leroy Sane two years ago on his summer vacation. It is quite possible that the German national football player will add a little red colour this time during his holiday.” We are dealing with the personnel,”said President Uli Hoeness of Bavaria Munich of the South German newspaper about Sane, who, before the DFB Cup Final of the record champion on Saturday (20.00 clock/ARD and Sky) is suddenly the number one topic of conversation against RB Leipzig.
As a prominent legacy of the club legends Franck Ribbey and Arjen Robben, who are contesting their last obligatory game for the Munich people in Berlin, Sane could become the royal staff of the Bavarian revolution. This, Hoeness had said on the verge of the championship, was further “pushed forward. We will not stop changing the team.”Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic will”become active again”and”create facts”after the Cup Final. Even with Sane?
According to “kicker” the Bavarians have already made contact with the family of the 23-year-old who advises the son. “We hope Leroy will stay”, City team manager Pep Guardiola had said after the FA Cup victory last weekend, “but if he does not want to, he does not want to”. Will Sane leave? According to Guardiola, “for at least a year and a half”, he refuses to renew his 2021 expiring contract.
Pep has apparently already signed San e-Sale
Addressed to the possible Munich interest, the former Bavarian coach, who still maintains good contact with Hoeness, said it was “not the time, to talk about hypothetical”. But it’s long overdue. According to “Times”, Guardiola has agreed to a sale.
Sane had to recognize in the past season also after strong performances that Guardiola, despite public praise (“Leroy is a special player”) is betting on others in the important games. In Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Riyadh Mahrez, he has strong competition, and the ever-demanding Guardiola doubts Sane’s tactical discipline.” I ask a lot of him and sometimes I criticize him too,”he said,”not only for actions with the ball –even without it.”
In England it is said that City is und er pressure to sell because of the Financial Fair Play. In particular, Guardiola wants to commit the Portuguese century talent Joao Felix (exit clause: 120 million euro). The Sane Millions would do just fine. Its market value is taxed at 100 million euros.
The replacement poker around Sane has already started
Hoeness (“We are not here at Monopoly”) had stressed last week that the Bavarians with the 80 million euros they paid for the world champion Lucas Hernandez at Atletitico Madrid had “reached a limit”. Mid-fielder Rodrigo, who could also come from Atletitico, fell with 70 million. And Sane? It should be clarified, “how much money is available,” Salihamidzic said about other potential entries.
The English Guardian indicated on Friday that Munich was planning an 80-million-euro offer for Sane. But whether ManCity will let the flapper fly for a comparatively small sum is questionable.
According to the Daily Mail, the English demand at least 100 million euros for Sane, whose contract is still dated until 2021. Should ManCity hold on to this sum, poker will be difficult for the Munich people, especially as the name Timo Werner continues to be traded.
Finally, at the end of the Transferof offensive, after a busy season, the usual oppressive Munich dominance will once again stand. I’m pretty sure that once we’ve developed the new team, we’ll be champions again sooner,”said Hoeness.
