Bayern Munich could clinch one of the biggest summer transfers by announcing that it was in talks with Manchester City to have winger Leroy Sane sign and that he had received permission to talk to the player.

Bayern Munich is one of the best. The Bundesliga champions have only one point to win for the seventh time in a row against Eintracht Frankfurt, but they still need a rebuild.
The players of Niko Kovac will be a little fortuitous to win the league and thanked for the collapse of Borussia Dortmund. They were eliminated from Liverpool in the last match of the Champions League 16.
The Germans are also losing their legendary pair of wingers with Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, both leaving the Allianz Arena.

This does not mean that a transfer is imminent with the two clubs that have not yet held discussions about a price, let alone the conditions agreed for a move.
City is in no hurry to sell Sane, but the German international has not signed a new contract yet. The player rejected an offer to extend his contract beyond 2021.
English champions do not want to see the value of the player down or risk losing it for free two years later, so consider selling it at the right price if the 23-year-old does not sign a new contract.

The news could actually come as an unlikely and rare fundraiser for City's local rival Manchester United.
Lille club Nicolas Pepe is another target for Bayern, but the striker's interest in Sane could be suspended, which could allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team to overtake the Kovac team.
Sane started 21 games in the league for the Pep Guardiola title team this season, but had to settle for a place on the bench for many important end-of-season games.
