Manchester City are confident of completing contract negotiations for star forward Leroy Sane according to reports. Both parties have been in negotiations in the since last summer without any major breakthrough.
There had been reports that the German star was demanding a wage offer of £200,000 a week. However it has been reported that the Cityzenshave made major headway in the negotiations.
Manchester Cityhave offered the forward a new wage worth £175,000 a week which appears to be accepted by the forward.
Sane is regarded as one of the best young wingers in the EPLand has been a major player for the team since signing from Schalke in 2017. During this time he has terrorized opposing defenders with his pace and skill.
The German is regarded as a pacy forward with an eye for goal and also capable of playing in both positions. The 22-year-old existing contract was set to expire in 2021 which has kept several clubs on alert.
Recently Manchester City legend Yaya Toure urged the young forward to sign a new deal with the club.
It is understood that Bayern Munich are deeply interested in the winger but Sane is undecided about his future. There have been several indications from Manchester City that he would sign a new deal.
Sane would be hoping to recover in time ahead of the second half of the season where he can contribute to City’s chase for domestic titles.
The German forward is currently injured after suffering an ACL injury in the first game of the season against Liverpool in the FA Community Shield. Manchester City are stacked in the position and have players that can replace him with the likes of Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, RiyadMahrez and Gabriel Jesus.
