Man City star Sane is a Bayern target – Hoeness

Manchester City winger Leroy Sané is a target for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, club president Uli Hoeness has confirmed. The 23-year-old has shone since moving to the Etihad Stadium from Schalke 04 three years ago, but found himself down the pecking order towards the end of the Premier League season.

Short-staffed on the wings

Bayern are in the market for reinforcements on the flanks, with Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben both drawing a curtain on their illustrious careers at the Allianz Arena at the end of the campaign. Speculation has increased over the previous few weeks that they were looking to Germany international Sané as a potential signing.

When asked by Suddeutsche Zeitung about Bayern's interest in Sané, Hoeness replied: "We are considering him."

Hoeness' revelation comes just a day after star striker Robert Lewandowski claimed Sané could "immediately take us higher". Bayern have also been linked with RB Leipzig star and Liverpool target Timo Werner and Atlético de Madrid midfielder Rodri.
