Leroy Sané’s chances of joining Bayern Munich are moving in the right direction.
On Wednesday, SportBild explained there was a phone call between Hans-Dieter Flick and the Manchester City player, and the pair spoke for 30 minutes.
These claims have been relayed by Bild and they further explain a personal conversation can ‘change so much’.
The Bavarian club’s new manager was initially in favour of signing RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner. However, a move for Pep Guardiola’s man is now preferred and the report states the transfer is ‘getting hotter and hotter’.
After Flick had a conversation with the 24-year-old, the Premier League winners and Bayern can now ‘clear the way for negotiations’.
It’s claimed Manchester City are hoping to receive a fee of €85m for Sané and the figure is significantly lower that what was quoted before the Coronavirus crisis. The Bundesliga winners, on the other hand, are thinking of offering €70m.
There’s a gap of €15m between what the Etihad club are demanding and what Bayern ‘want to pay’ for Sané.
If the two clubs can somehow manage to find an agreement, a deal could be concluded in the summer.
