Bayern Munich have been chasing Leroy Sane throughout the window and their leaders have publicly expressed their interest in signing the Manchester City winger on numerous occasions.
The Germany international picked up an injury in his side’s Community Shield victory over Liverpool.
Bild suggest Bayern are unhappy with the latest developments regarding the 23-year-old and a Tuesday report still didn’t give a clear indication whether or not the Bundesliga winners will be able to sign Sane.
Bayern need to strengthen the wide areas after losing Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben at the end of their contracts this summer.
Spanish newspaper AS claim Niko Kovac’s side could turn their attention towards Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, if they fail to get Sane out of the Etihad.
Los Blancos want to get rid of the Welshman and it’s claimed Bayern have not given up chasing Bale.
If Sane doesn’t arrive at the Allianz Arena, AS say Bayern could look at the possibility of signing Bale on a loan deal, paying part of his salary of €14.5m per season.
The German slant on this is very different, with Bayern interest in Bale being dismissed repeatedly.
