Reports in Germany indicate that Premier league giants Manchester City are not lowering their valuation of Midfielder Leroy Sane despite renewed talks in recent weeks.
Bayern have being to cough out about £62m (€70m) for the Germany winger – whose contract runs out in the summer of 2021 – with Bayern’s latest offer coming in at £36m (€40m).
Bayern manager Hansi Flick said on Wednesday that wide players would be one of his transfer priorities this summer, while the club’s honorary president and deputy chairman Uli Hoeness has again expressed his desire for a deal to be reached.
The German champions wanted him last summer but he suffered a serious knee injury in the Community Shield game against Liverpool and has not played since during the 2019/20 campaign.
Sane was on the verge of making his first-team comeback prior to the suspension of the Premier League due to the coronavirus pandemic – which is set to restart on June 17 – featuring for City in an U23 fixture against Arsenal in February.
He started only 21 games in the Premier League last season, having started 27 in 2017/18.
Meanwhile, champions Bayern moved to within two wins of the Bundesliga title on Saturday.
