Leroy Sane has acknowledged that he is delaying his future discussions with Bayern Munich.
The Germany international’s contract expires in2025, and the Bavarians are eager for him to accept an extension. He has been linked to a move to Liverpool.
The attacker, who turns 28 in January, has had a fantastic start to the German season. After making 18 appearances, he has returned with nine goals and seven assists, and he is already well on his way to surpassing his best-ever scoring season of 16 goals for Man City in 2018–19.
Sane’s performance has made him associated with a Premier League comeback. The German was named by Liverpool as their top target to replace Mohamed Salah should the Egyptian leave Saudi Arabia at the conclusion of the season, and the club was eager to make the German their club record signing, according to a report published in The Mirror last month. He has also been connected to a return to Manchester City in the interim.
During the November international break, when the forward was away with Germany, questions were raised over his future. Even while he maintained that he is content at Bayern right now, he acknowledged that he won’t be making a choice about his future until the end of the current campaign, when he will be starting the last year of his contract.
“I haven’t thought about it,” he said to the press. “I want to focus on the season right now, but the club wants to have discussions.” My initial contract point will be Bayern; the rest will work themselves out.
“Both on and off the pitch, I am assuming an increasing amount of responsibility.” Right now, I truly enjoy the role and position. I want to reward Julian (Nagelsmann) for his great knowledge of me with performances that are strong.
“I played into a flow and was well-prepared. I’m having a great time right now both at the club and with the national squad.
Although Sane has been linked to a move to Liverpool, the ECHO is aware that the Reds’ pursuit of a player who turns 28 in January would be in violation of the club’s standard transfer policy.
