Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has apologised to Manchester City after Niko Kovac said he was confident of landing Leroy Sane. Sane is known to be a top target for the Bundesliga champions, but so far they have been able to hammer out a deal with City, who are reluctant to sell the German international.
Bayern are nowhere near matching City’s valuat ion of the player, and even then a deal may not happen, but that did not stop Kovac from suggesting they are optimistic. However, Rummenigge has not welcomed the comments and believes they could harm the relationship between the two clubs. “I did not like what he said,” Rummenigge told ZDF.

“We have a good relationship with Manchester City and our former coach Pep Guardiola. “Sane still has a contract there. “Neither optimistic nor pessimistic quotes do anything to help us in that matter.” It would appear that Bayern are still working on a deal behind the scenes and Rummenigge would prefer all talks to remain confidential for now at least.
