The German giants are chasing the signature of a 24-year-old footballer from last year but delayed their chase when he got a cruciate ligament rupture at the beginning of the season.
Bayern should be careful with Leroy Sane
Bayern Munich should be careful when it comes to moving Manchester City winger Leroy Sane this summer, club legend Oliver Kahn has warned. The German giants are chasing the signature of a 24-year-old footballer from last year. But delayed their chase when he got a cruciate ligament rupture at the beginning of the season. Sane has not played for the current Premier League title holders since the Community Shield win over Liverpool last August. But is available for selection again and was on the bench 3-0 victory over Arsenal in the middle of the week. Pep Guardiola this week confirmed that Germany international wants to leave the club soon. And rejected a proposal to extend the contract, which expires in the summer of 2021.
According to Oliver Kahn, Bayern have to play safe
Bayern Munich remains the Germany international’s most likely destination. But board member Kahn does not discuss the likelihood of moving to the next transfer window. However, he warned that the club would have to play safe when it comes to finances in the foreseeable future. As they seek to deal with the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. “He has a year contract with Manchester City, and there’s nothing more to say about it now,” the former Bayern Munich and the Germany national goalkeeper team Kahn told reporters. “Then we will talk about transfers, about the obligations of players, if they took place. Perhaps, also in the next season, I think this is the time when you need to act very carefully, especially economically.”
Bayern Munich won an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title this year, 10 points ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s closest rivals. Kahn, who has won eight trophies as a player with the club, is disappointed by the lack of competition for his side but says they cannot slow down for other teams. He said: “Of course, competition like the Bundesliga is very lively with tension, especially with tension around the league title, but we cannot go and say, “Yes, we will play a little worse now”. Of course, competition is also necessary to make the best use of our means. There were chances for the game to attack and knock us off the throne. But this team has an incredible mentality, an incredible will. They were honored champions.”
