Bayern Munich “offered the star to Man City” in the exchange agreement with Leroy Sane

    Manchester City star Leroy Sane has almost moved to the Allianz Arena as part of a profitable exchange deal with Bayern Munich defender David Alaba, according to reports from Germany.

    24-year-old Sane did not show up for the first team since last summer’s Community Shield triumph over Liverpool, during which his anterior cruciate ligament broke.

    He was about to get back in shape before the coronavirus epidemic caused matches to be postponed, making an appearance for the U23 team in Premier League 2 last month.

    However, the lack of German football this season did little to put Bundesliga champions back in their quest, and David Alaba was part of the offer as Bayern tried to get the deal over the line.

    Alaba’s agent, Pini Zahavi, suggested to include his client in the agreement for Sane, according to the German newspaper Bild.

    Alaba, like Sane, is also without a contract in 2021 and neither club will want their stars to leave the free transfers next summer.

    City boss Pep Guardiola worked with versatile left-back Alaba during his three-year spell with Bayern and was enthusiastic about the move, but Alaba and Zahavi eventually turned down the City offer.

    Alaba, 27, can now choose to extend his 12-year stay at Bayern or move to Spain, where he is looking forward to playing.

    Real Madrid and Barcelona are ideal goals for him and both clubs interest the Austrian more than a pass in England.

    As such, an exchange agreement involving Alaba now seems very unlikely, although Bayern Munich is still ready to bring Sane into the Bundesliga after having almost landed his signature last summer.

    SportBILD reports that Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has met Sane’s representatives, LIAN Sports, and that a commission in the range of 80 million euros is being discussed, although Barcelona and Real Madrid are also monitoring the situation.
