Leroy Sané and Bayern Munich- a link that has been speculated for almost a year, the Bundesliga champions have always been on a pursuit to land the player, and their new method of luring the Manchester City superstar to Germany is by trying to acquire his younger brother, Sidi Sané.
Sidi is currently playing for FC Schalke 04’s under 17 team, and is the latest transfer target for the Bavarian side, according to reports from Kicker.
The 16 year old center forward is famous for his devastating speed on field, along with praise from Frank Fahrenhorst, Die Knappen’s under 17 coach -“You clearly recognize his qualities.”
This deal can turnout to be a ‘killing two birds with one stone’ situation. Primarily, luring the City winger to Allianz Arena to reunite with his sibling, and also bolstering up the strength of Bayern’s youth squad.
Niko Kovač stated last Monday that he was ‘confident’ on getting the 23 year old to his side.
“Our leadership is very engaged in the situation there. I’m confident and assume that we will get him” the 47 year old said, according to ZDF.
Die Roten are yet to make an offer for the youngster.
Leroy Sané faced an injury during the Citizens’ faceoff against Liverpool in the FA Community Shield final, and was taken off the field after 13 minutes of playtime. After both teams netted one goal each, Pep’s side won the match 5-4 in penalties.
