Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sane Attracts Interest from Manchester City and Liverpool in Potential Transfer Battle. As Liverpool braces for a possible departure of Mohamed Salah in 2024—likely in the summer—Sane has emerged as a recent target for the club. Sane’s contract at Bayern is set to expire at the end of the following season, prompting Bayern to actively seek an extension. Despite Bayern’s denial of stalled negotiations, they face increasing pressure due to other clubs expressing interest in the 27-year-old winger.
Recent reports by Christian Falk suggest that Manchester City, Sane’s former club, has unexpectedly entered the race alongside Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to bring him back to the Premier League. Manchester City, having reinforced their flank with Jeremy Doku after losing Cole Palmer and Riyad Mahrez, may face an uphill battle in convincing Sane to return. Sane has an impressive track record, having won five league titles in the last six seasons: twice with Manchester City (2017-18, 2018-19) and three consecutive titles with Bayern Munich since joining in the 2020-21 season.
His upcoming match with Bayern against Koln on November 24 will be pivotal as they aim to keep pace with surprise league leaders, Bayer Leverkusen.
