Sane & Bayern
Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben both left Bayern Munich at the end of the 2018/19 season.
As a result, the German giants are in the market for some fresh legs out wide.
One of those players looks to be Manchester City winger, Leroy Sane.
Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has previously confirmed the Bavarians’ interest in Sane:
“We will try[to sign Sane]. I cannot promise whether it will succeed.” As quoted by the Guardian.
However, since Bayern’s chairman made that statement, conflicting reports over Sane’s future have emerged.
Sky Sports News claimed that is was unlikely that Sane would join Bayern this summer.
Bild journalist Christian Falk, though, then suggested that neither Sane, nor Manchester City, had ruled out the possibility of the German joining Bayern Munich.

Man City offered Alaba
Now, according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Bayern Munich have reportedly offered David Alaba as part of a deal for Sane.
MD also claims that a similar deal was offered to Barcelona for the transfer of Ousmane Dembele.
Alaba has played over 300 games for the Bundesliga champions, in which he has scored 29 and assisted 46.
However, the report from Mundo Deportivo speculates that now that Bayern have signed fellow left-back Lucas Hernandez, Alaba could be relegated to the bench:
Niko Kovac , the Bayern coach, is carrying out a thorough remodeling of the squad. It has detached veteran players and is promoting different demarcations. One of them is the left side. Card to Lucas Hernández , from Atlético de Madrid, for 80 million euros, which, on paper, relegates David Alaba to the substitution.
