‘It’s not an option in winter’

Bayern Munich’s Hasan Salihamidizic rules out January move for Man City’s winger Leroy Sané.

When interviewed at Bayern Munich’s winter Camp in Doha, Bayern Sporting director Hasan Salihamidizic is asked about their target Sane.

He said frankly: “No, it is not an option in winter.”

The Germany winger has been out for five months after having cruciate ligament surgery following an injury sustained against Liverpool in the Community Shield in August.

As Man City’s boss Guardiola reviewed before, Sane will return to training in the next few weeks.
