The German winger has been linked with a return to the Bundesliga, but a former Schalke colleague has a warning for his former teammate.
Leroy Sane is overly “sensitive” to proceed to Bayern Munich and may struggle with the burden of anticipation at Germany’s largest team, based on some former teammate Dennis Aogo.
Manchester City ahead Sane has been connected with a return to Bundesliga and his representative recently confirmed he has been in motion talks with Bayern. It’d be the very first time Sane has played German league soccer because he transferred out of Schalke into Manchester City for $56 million at August 2016.
Full-back Aogo was a teammate of both Sane’s in Schalke between 2013 and his death for the Premier League and states he admires the Germany international as a participant, he doesn’t know whether he’s strong enough emotionally to deal with the pressure that comes with playing for Bayern.
Talking exclusively to Target and Spox, Aogo stated: “I think that it would be amazing for your league [if Sane would return to Bundesliga] because he is a spectacle. But, I don’t know if it’s the move to Bayern will be perfect for Leroy.
“The bundle of expectations and move fee might have an effect on him. He’s a handsome man, but I also got to understand him as a sensitive personality. He might have evolved in this respect, yet this backpack may also become overly significant after such a severe accident ”
Sane has been linked with a move to Allianz Arena for well more than a year, however, any plans he may have had because of his long run have been postponed because of a cruciate knee ligament injury.
Sane just has one year left to run on his current deal in the Etihad Stadium, and new rumours of a possible change to Bayern have begun to swirl before the summer.
His representative Damir Smoljan stated a week: “With him, we speak with Manchester City regarding exactly what another step could look like. The interest of Bayern Munich isn’t any key.
“Bayern is the only club in Germany which Leroy can envision as another step in his profession. He sees the requirements for attaining his huge aim of winning the Champions League.”
