This transfer window has been as busy as ever for Manchester City, however one player they’re not letting go is Leroy Sane.
According to the Daily Mail, Bayern Munich was trying to get their hands on Sane all summer, only now have they accepted that it isn’t going to happen. With this in mind, the German is now training and playing with Guardiola’s men in pre-season.
It is said that Sane didn’t seek to force a move even though he dropped down the pecking order at the Etihad last season. The Football Manc Cave has now picked out two things that the winger can do to impress his boss and get back on top.
Premier League Asia Trophy
Today, Man City will face West Ham in the Asian cup. It’s the semi-final of the competition so it is expected that Guardiola’s side will be looking to advance into the final as he is a competitive man. However, a lot of players are missing due to other commitments. One of those players is starting favourite, Sergio Aguero. While he’s been playing for Argentina in the 2019 Copa America, Sané has been edging his way into the starting line up.
If he does start, which I’m presuming he will, this should give him the perfect opportunity to prove himself to the team, fans and Pep.
We’ve already said that Bayern Munich have shown interest in the player and they’ll probably keep monitoring him throughout the next season. If they do, Sane will be hoping to prove himself to them. Let’s say he has a brilliant pre-season that sees him get game time in the Premier League. Knowing he’s being watched by a big club will give him the motivation to impress. This way he will impress Pep Guardiola too.
So even though he’d be playing well for personal reasons and his future, Man City fans should hopefully see some great football.
