Leroy Sane Likely To Leave Manchester City In Summer Transfer Window

Leroy Sane is determined to take his talents elsewhere.

The Manchester City winger will leave the club during the summer transfer window, manager Pep Guardiola confirmed Friday in a press conference. Sane has rejected multiple offers to extend his stay in Manchester, and the club now prefers to sell him, instead of losing him next summer as a free agent.

Rumors have linked Sane with a transfer to Bayern Munich for months, and the 24-year-old reportedly is the German giant’s top transfer target. Manchester City will demand a hefty transfer fee for Sane, with reports suggest the club values him at £62 million (€68 million/$77 million).

Manchester City signed Sane from German club Schalke in 2016 for £37 million (€41 million/$46 million). He helped City win two Premier League titles, as well as two EFL Cups and one FA Cup in his four seasons with the club.

The knee injury Sane suffered in Manchester City’s first game of the season has limited him to just two appearances in 2019-20, but he remains a valuable asset due to his age and talent. While City will profit financially from his value, another club likely will reap the benefits of his presence on the field in a few months’ time.
