The transfer saga involving Manchester City's Leroy Sané and Bayern Munich has been in the spotlight for a very long time now. The Bavarians came very close to signing the 24-year-old midfielder before an unpleasant injury that dashed our chances at seeing Sané in Bayern trikot last season.

What we know now about the transfer is that Bayern’s chances of bringing Sané to Munich seems to be slowly fading with each passing day. According to Sport Bild, sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic recently met with the player's new management in Munich to discuss the possibility of the move. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who contacted Sané in January, did not take part in the meeting, and official talks with LIAN Sports cannot commence until April 1, when Sané’s relationship with Beckham’s Agency ends.

Thus, as of now, there have not been any new discussions regarding topics such as the player's salary with his new agent — that apparently has raised doubts about Bayern’s interest in the player. Apart from the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in and around the world of football, the delay by the front office in making their motive clear is another reason that could have a negative impact on the move.

As the Bundesliga giants have acting slowly in the hunt for Sané, Barcelona and Real Madrid are allegedly on top of the race to sign the player. Unless the Brazzo propose a deal that would clear up the confusion, there is no guarantee that the club will soon go anywhere forward with the transfer.
