This transfer is fixed, people thought a few weeks ago. Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic and board member Oliver Kahn are said to have “basically agreed on a five-year contract with Manchester City’s Leroy Sané”, writes “Bild” at the beginning of May. And a few days ago Uli Hoeness, long-time big boss at the record champions, made it clear that you have a team that is capable of development, with the players who are already there and «I also hope with Leroy Sané, with Coman, with Gnabry. I can well imagine, if everything goes well, that Bayern Munich is just beginning a new era. »
Words that make every Bayern fan dream. But now Kahn comes and steps fully on the euphoria brake. «At the moment there are completely different things to be mastered. If the market starts up at all, I’m rather skeptical at the moment, ”says the goalie legend at“ Sky90 ”. He could even imagine that there will be no transfers at all. “We’re looking at everything at the moment, like many European clubs. I have not found that the clubs are ready to make large transfers. »
And about Sané, who still has a contract in Manchester until 2021, Kahn says: «Sané has an injury behind him, trying to find a connection bit by bit. I think it’s difficult today to talk about players here today who have a valid employment contract. »
Sagnol doesn’t want Sané
There is also criticism of a possible Sané transfer. Bayern legend Willy Sagnol, for example, would not oblige the fast winger. “In terms of character, he doesn’t suit Bayern,” says the 43-year-old on the radio station “RMC”. «He is someone whose form is very inconsistent and who is very withdrawn. He had many problems with Manchester City and also with the national team, »says the French clear text.
Sagnol suggests an alternative: “We’re talking about costs of 80 million euros. I would rather put 20 million euros on it and sign Kai Havertz. »
Havertz is currently playing big at Leverkusen and has aroused the interest of all top clubs. What do the Bavarians say about a Havertz commitment? «Of course it’s a top talent, a great player, but that doesn’t mean that FC Bayern is interested in all these good players. He has an ongoing contract, »says Kahn with Pokerface. He cannot be seen in the cards here either. (mam)
