It was claimed yesterday by SPORT BILD that Bayern had a personal agreement with Sané for a five-year deal.
Adding to that, the Bundesliga giants plan to open with a bid of €40m, even lower than the amount City paid for the 24-year-old.
Bayern believe Sané’s wish to return to Germany will pressure Man City to sell, but the Citizens have other plans.
According to the latest information, City would prefer to let Sané enter the final year of his contract than sell him on the cheap.
Pep Guardiola still views Sané as a vital member of his squad, and bids of €40m would be instantly rejected.
City know they won’t get the €115m they valued Sané at last year, but would want significantly more than €40m.
Bayern are confident of a deal for the ex-Schalke winger, but it appears there is much negotiating to be done.
Former Bayern head coach Jupp Heynckes recently claimed Sané is not a €100m player, despite recognising the player’s immense talent.
