Leroy Sane made a permanent deal to Bayern Munich recently. He is keen to play alongside David Alaba and urges him to snub transfer talks.
Bayern Munich made a £45m deal with Manchester City to sign Leroy Sane. The German was keen on making a move to Bayern. The Bundesliga giants were also in favor of signing the winger. Hence, a deal came through easily for both parties.
But Sane wants one of his teammates to snub transfer talks this summer. It none other than David Alaba. The Austrian has been a part of Bayern Munich for over a decade. But he is nearing the end of his contract and has been linked with moving from Germany.
Many suitors have also shown their interest in the left-back. Barcelona and Manchester City are the most keen suitors for the 28-year-old. City having just completed a deal with Bayern could have an edge on the deal. Barcelona has also been looking for options to cover Jordi Alba. Hence, Alaba fits their descriptions piece to piece.
But as per Sports Bild, Sane hopes to play alongside the Austrian. The winger wishes that he snub the transfer talks and continue at Bayern. Sane explains that he is a huge admirer of the left-back. Who he considers being one of the best in the world. Hence, he wants to be able to play with the Austrian. Having just completed the deal, Sane is yet to team up with the Bundesliga giants.
Alaba in no rush to leave the club
Though Bayern and Alaba are yet to meet personal terms on deciding his future. Alaba is currently focusing on its Champions League games. The Bavarian side will start the preparations for their game against Chelsea soon. They have a three-goal lead in the first leg and hope to promote to the next stage with ease.
David Alaba has been reportedly asking for a wage increase. Being one of the best defenders he hopes to get better benefits. But already having a young talent like Alphonso Davies, Alaba’s spot is occupied. The Austrian though naturally, an LB plays in the center lately.
If the terms are not met, Alaba may opt to leave Bayern. Real Madrid and Barcelona were some of his admirers. But a move to LaLiga seems highly unlikely so far. At the same time, City and Chelsea have also been looking to sign the star. Hence, he may receive deals from the PL duo if he decides to leave the club.
Having just a year left on his contract, Bayern has shown interest in extending his stay. But he needs his demands to be met as well. Else we may see the Austrian leave his club of over a decade soon.
Sane can be key for Bayern
Leroy Sane was a key member of Pep’s lineup. Though he was out this season with an injury, he was a pivotal part of the earlier seasons. Hence, he can be a key factor in the Bavarian lineup as well.
Sane has won several trophies with City during his time there. The German lifted two league cups, an FA Cup, and two PL titles. Hence, he can also add strength to Bayern’s squad. Adding to their consecutive league titles and winning big as well. Bayern is now aiming for the UCL, Sane can help them achieve their goal. Also, his return to Germany can help him get into the National team’s pecking order.
As for his buddy Alaba, if the terms are not met we may see his bid goodbye soon. Manchester City has been eyeing Alaba for a while now. Formerly there were hints of a swap deal involving Sane and Alaba. But with the £45m deal that is off the table. Bayern will be happy to sell Alaba to City to get their transfer fund back from the Sane deal.
