Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus is convinced Manchester City winger Leroy Sane will sign for the Bavarians this summer. The German international is known to be on the wanted list of Bayern as they look to bring in fresh attacking talent this summer and Matthaus believes a deal suits all parties.
The 23-year-old struggled to command a regular place in the City side last season and it is thought Pep Guardiola would be happy to let him go and then use the cash to strengthen his own squad. Sane will cost in the region of £100million and Matthaus believes the transfer will happen.
“A player who, in my eyes, will enchant the Bayern fans next year is Leroy Sane. I am sure he will move to Munich,” Matthaus wrote in a column for Sky. “If [Bayern president] Uli Hoeness publicly reveals that it makes an effort for the player, this lands in the vast majority of cases in Bavaria.
“And it would be a fantastic transfer, as Sane is one of the best wingers out there. Tricky, dangerous for goal, fast, usable on both wings and provided with a great future. “[Pep] Guardiola is not really satisfied with him, the player wants to play more regularly and Bayern looks for the departure of [Arjen] Robben and [Franck] Ribery at least one man for the wing. It would be a win-win transfer for all parties.”
