Manchester City have responded to Bayern Munich’s bid for Leroy Sane

Manchester City have rejected Bayern Munich's £70.7m bid for Leroy Sane, write the Guardian.

The Germany international has emerged as a key transfer target for the Bundesliga champions, who are targeting a new winger after the exits of Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.

Sane was named as the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2017/18, but he fell down the pecking order as Manchester City retained the Premier League title this term.

The former Schalke man was restricted to only 21 top-flight starts, although he still managed to score 10 goals and provide 10 assists.

Bayern are expected to return with a second bid having placed Sane at the top of their summer wish list. 

City would prefer to keep hold of the 23-year-old but would consider selling him to Bayern if the price is right.
