Liverpool’s interest in Bayern Munich star Leroy Sane is very real and may lead to a summer move.
That is the view of BILD journalist Christian Falk, who spoke about the situation in a recent video.
Falk outlined the stance of Bayern and the view of Liverpool ahead of possible negotiations for Sane, who is out of contract in 2025.
He stated: “Leroy Sané is currently playing in the form of his life for Bayern and as reported, FC Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp have their eyes on him.
“And now Bayern are finally reacting. As Sport Director Christoph Freund confirmed in the SportBILD, there was a contact recording. I listened around. Yes, and it should look like this. FC Bayern would like to extend the contract with him. Therefore, after the international break, he offered to get together.
“A conversation should then be agreed upon directly, namely with Sané’s consultant Fali Ramadani. He then flies to Munich and then will finally be spoken to. Will he extend his contract or not? I heard he feels very, very comfortable.
“Leroy is estimated to earn €20m. There is still a bit of leeway, but not much more. With Bayern, top earners were up to €25m. So, you have to talk. The contract should be extended.
“However, as I heard, Manchester City has now also set its eyes on him. His ex-club, whether he would return to Pep Guardiola? I honestly don’t think so. I think Bayern really has very good chances to extend with Leroy. But that has to be discussed now. And these conversations are now starting.”
