It looks like Pep Guardiola will still help Bayern Munchen win a championship, as the Spaniard is bound to open up the door for one of his stars to leave the Etihad Stadium in the summer.
The Bavarians are eager to further strengthen their positions at the wing, with the Ribery-Robben era finally set to come to an end at the Allianz Arena, and that's why they'll make a run at City's Leroy Sane, as reported by the Daily Record.
Thing is, after becoming a pivotal part of Guardiola's starting XI last year, the German has been constantly left out of the team since the second half of this season, and he's reluctant to agree to sign a new contract unless they promise him more playing time.
The Citizens, however, are unlikely to change their team any time soon, as they just became one of the most impressive English Premier League champions in the history of the competition.
That's why Bayern Munchen would be more than willing to welcome him back to his homeland, as Sane's not just one of the most prolific playmakers in Europe, but also an incredibly effective finisher.
Sane can play on both flanks of the pitch or even as a false 9, and that kind of versatility perfectly suits a dynamic team like Bayern Munchen, and he'd be open to a move back to Germany to take his career forward.
Bayern was keen to sign Sane earlier in 2016 but the Citizens eventually outbid them for his services, and he's truly grown as a player under Pep's tutelage.
However, Bernardo Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyadh Mahrez and Raheem Sterling have all been incredibly productive for Guardiola's side, so Sane'll be forced to find a new team if he doesn't want to miss on Germany's national team again.
