Liverpool allegedly asked Leroy Sane if he would be interested in making a move to Anfield rather than to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, according to report from the reliable German journalist Christian Falk of BILD.
Sane has been linked with a summer move to Bayern Munich and it appears that the Germany international wants to make a switch back to his homeland.
However, Bayern and City have yet to agree to terms on a transfer sum for the winger and as such, no transfer looks immediately imminent.
With Leroy about to enter the final year of his deal, City need to make a decision about the star’s future and it’s looking like they will be forced to sell him to Die Roten.
Liverpool, however, apparently asked the former Schalke ace to ignore the interest of the German champions and instead, make what would be an eye-catching move to Anfield.
Leroy, though, refused to consider this as an option as the star did want to upset Manchester City, or their fans, by making a transfer to their direct rivals.
Meanwhile, Caglar Soyuncu’s former agent Mustafa Dogru has suggested that Liverpool are the only side capable of landing the Leicester City defender this summer.
“It is possible Caglar can go to play for Barcelona this summer,” Dogru told a Spanish newspaper AS. “Barca already wanted to sign him when he played for Altinordu.
“We have negotiated with them and they have presented a project. But we think that he should go to a team where he is a permanent starter, for it to develop properly.
“I think only Liverpool have the power to sign Caglar in the Premier League because of his economic conditions, but we must not forget French teams. PSG could be a surprise.”
