German news outlet BILD (h/t SPORT) has reported that Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane is now attracting interest from Barcelona.
The outlet also mentions that Real Madrid also happens to be equally interested in the former Manchester City forward.
Sane’s ongoing deal with Bayern runs until 2025 and it is said that he could be on his way out at the end of the ongoing season as Bayern may consider selling him if he doesn’t extend his contract.
Sane is appreciated at Barcelona
Sane is someone who is highly regarded by the coaching staff at Barcelona. His name was been under consideration during the past summer as well as the one before that, although Barça refrained from making any moves due to financial constraints.
Over the last few transfer windows, Xavi has expressed his desire for a dynamic left-footed winger, and there’s no doubt that the German ace, whose market value stands at €65 million, would be a valuable addition to any team, let alone Barcelona.
As of today, though, Barcelona are only monitoring his situation as they maintain an excellent relationship with his agent, who also represents Marcos Alonso. However, there have been no concrete developments in this regard.
Sane in good nick at Bayern
Sane has been in excellent form this season, having scored six goals so far. This season, he has established a strong rapport with Harry Kane and maintains a positive connection with manager Thomas Tuchel.
However, the winger had previously indicated his openness to a potential departure last summer if a significant offer came along.
While he ultimately decided to continue, it appears increasingly possible that he will not renew his contract, potentially putting Bayern in a position where they may have to consider selling him.
