Juventus ‘join Bayern Munich’ in transfer race for Man City star Leroy Sane to team up with Cristiano Ronaldo

JUVENTUS are reportedly interested in making a move for Manchester City star Leroy Sane.

The German international is currently out injured but is still highly thought of by a host of top European clubs.

Bayern Munich were believed to be the front-runners for the 24-year-old who joined City for £37million from Schalke in 2016.

But now according to Calcio Mercato, Juventus are keen to pair him with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo at the focal point of the attack.

The Italian giants are said to have been checking on his recovery at the Etihad and will decide in the summer whether to make a bid.

Sane has made a total of 134 appearances for City in all competitions, scoring 39 goals.

Bayern were close to capturing the 24-year-old's signature last summer before he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in the Community Shield win over Liverpool.


And they were forced to look elsewhere for new wide-men following Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery’s exits.

Callum Hudson-Odoi was another target but he eventually stayed at Chelsea before signing a new contract.

Bayern ended up landing both Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona and Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan on loan.

But club president Herbert Hainer admits Sane remains a target for the Champions League hopefuls.

He said: “Leroy Sane is a great player that we are interested in, which is a well-known fact.

“Now we have to see how he comes back after his injury.”
