Manchester City have turned down an opening proposal from Bayern Munich for Leroy Sane, sources have told Metro.co.uk. Bayern have conducted an aggressive and public charm offensive in an attempt to persuade Sane into returning to Germany this summer, but their delay in submitting an official bid has raised eyebrows at the Etihad. Metro.co.uk revealed in April that City feared Sane’s head had been turned by the potential of a move to Bavaria and the German is understood to be keen on a move to the Allianz. Sane’s contract expires in 2021 and City, who have offered the German a new £180,000-a-week deal, suspect his representatives have ‘cynically’ allowed talks to continue without a definitive answer on their proposal.

That, coupled with Bayern’s antagonistic pursuit of Sane, has angered City and the club were furious with Niko Kovac’s claim that he was ‘confident’ a deal was close for the winger.

Bayern’s hierarchy were equally enraged and asked Kovac to apologise to Pep Guardiola, fearing that he had jeopardised negotiations. Bayern president Uli Hoeness has now taken charge of talks with City and Metro.co.uk understands a fee of around £72m (€80m) has been suggested. However, the figure falls well short of City’s valuation of Sane and the club made it clear that any successful bid would have to be vastly improved.
