Sane’s injury to end Bayern’s interest

LEROY Sane’s proposed move to Bayern Munich has hit the rocks amid injury woe and a tussle with Manchester City over his price tag.

Sportsmail understands the Bundesliga champions have been left shocked by City’s £135million valuation of Sane, who has turned down the offer a new contract at the Etihad Stadium.

Sane’s situation is further complicated by a knee injury sustained during Sunday’s Community Shield that is believed to be worse than first anticipated.

The 23-year-old left Wembley with heavy strapping on his right knee after a clash with Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.

There was hope earlier in the week that the problem was not serious but sources on Wednesday night described it as a ‘bad injury’.

It throws Sane’s immediate future into doubt, with the two clubs remaining some way apart in their valuation of the player following discussions.

Thursday’s transfer deadline is not prohibitive given German clubs can still make signings until September 2 and the Premier League champions would not rush into landing a replacement.

City maintain they want market value for the 23-year-old and sources have pointed towards the fee Barcelona paid Dortmund for Ousmane Dembele in 2017.
