Leroy Sané is one of Bayern Munich’s most dangerous players right now, playing phenomenally on both sides of the attack. It looks like the 27-year-old former Manchester City winger’s reward is an extended stay in Munich as per sporting director Christoph Freund:

Christoph Freund confirms the club wants to extend Leroy Sané’s contract: “We will certainly hold talks in the next few weeks. He’s an exceptionally good player, a key player – and it would be nice if he stayed in Munich for a long time.

There were rumblings earlier this year that Sané would stay at Bayern at least until after the 2024 Euros in Germany and then decide if he would seek a transfer, but now he’ll probably stay and continue to light up the wings.

Sané played a big role in Bayern winning 3-0 over SC Freiburg in the Bundesliga, scoring one and another being chalked off due to an offside in the build-up.

Looking for more analysis of the game? Is Leroy Sané (arguably) the best player in the world right now? What about Thomas Muller — how does he influence the way Bayern Munich plays in 2023? We talk about all that and a lot more (including a bit on Germany and Nagelsmann) in our newest podcast episode! Listen to it below or directly on Spotify.
