Former Bayern Munich manager labels Sane “overpriced” amid transfer rumours


Leroy Sane has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich for sometime now, and with summer transfer window not so far – those links with a return to Germany are back again.

Sane could been a Munich player today, if not for his knee injury sustained just at the kick-off of the campaign in the Community Shield.

With Bayern expected to be in run for Leroy in the upcoming window, the exchange of cash is expected to be limited due to the current financial situation because of pandemic.

And former Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes believes Leroy Sane is “overpriced” in the current market. Heynckes believes the German international has to become more consistent to be considered among the best.


“For me, he has not yet made a breakthrough to an absolute top player,” Heynckes speaking with German news outlet Bild.

“I think this is a player at a crossroads. Will he keep working hard on himself, or will he remain just as an exceptional talent?

“He has to be ready to make the next big step. Because there is no use in flashing the talent from time to time. I also honestly tell you that I don’t consider the price justifiable.”


Sane’s former teammate, Dennis Aogo warned Leroy over much-talked about move to Munich, feeling the pressure at Allianz Arena will be too sensitive for former Schalke star.

Aogo said: “I think it would be awesome for the league [if Sane would return to Bundesliga] because he’s a spectacle.

“However, I do not know whether a move to Bayern would be right for Leroy.

“The package of expectations and transfer fee could have an impact on him. He is a fine guy, but I also got to know him as a sensitive character. He may have evolved in this regard, but this backpack could also become too heavy after such a serious injury.”

Leroy Sane has been sidelined for a long time after having damaged his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) against Liverpool in Community Shield, although he featured for the U23’s against Arsenal in February as part of getting back to full fitness.

He was all ready to make his comeback for the Cityzens till football was suspended in England due to coronavirus pandemic.


But with Season’s fate up in the air, will we see Sane in Manchester City infamous blues once again?
