Leroy Sané has been on an absolute tear for Bayern Munich this season and become utterly indispensable to coach Thomas Tuchel. Naturally, that makes the fact that his contract in Munich expires in 2025 a particular concern for the club. Luckily, it seems Sané is open to extending his contract...but only after the European Championship.
This is according to reporters Christian Falk and Tobi Altschäffl, as captured by @iMiaSanMia. They also mention that Freund seems to have approached Sané before the end of the year about renewing his contract, with the former Manchester City winger assuring Freund that he is “interested in extending contract in principle.”
Freund then followed up with Sané’s management, LIAN Sports. Unfortunately, there seems to be nothing concrete or advanced. In fact, Sané wants to focus on the rest of the season and make his decision after the European Championship, at which point in time he will have around 12 months remaining on his contract. Whether or not this is suitable for Bayern remains to be seen, as it gives Sané’s camp a lot of leverage in contract talks. And considering the amount of players who have left the Bavarian giants for free in recent seasons, that is not a reassuring sign for Bayern fans.
