It seems everyone is trying to get involved in the Leroy Sané to Bayern Munich story, as Nicolo Schira, journalist for Gazzetta dello Sport and Calciomercato, provides an update on his Twitter.
The last few updates have been mere confirmations from members of the Bundesliga champions’ board, such as Uli Hoeneß and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, that talks were underway for the Manchester City forward.
There’s been very little detail about the amounts in the supposed offers and contract talks, with even the closest sources to Bayern Munich struggling to get anything, merely guessing the figures would be in the ‘high eight figure sums’ for the transfer fee.
Schira, however, appears to have stumbled across all of the information, by claiming on social media that Bayern Munich have offered Sané a five-year deal, with €10m/year, meant to keep him in Bavaria until 2024.
On top of that, the German side would pay Manchester City €80m for the player’s services, allowing them to make a profit on their original £45m expenditure made in 2016.
If true, that’s a €130m five-year investment by the Germans, who are looking for replacement for both Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben, both leaving on a free in June.
Despite starting just 55% of Premier League games this season, the 23-year-old still managed to score 10 goals and assist 11 times.
