Leroy Sane is always remembered fondly by City fans for his time at Manchester City. He formed a lethal combination out wide with Raheem Sterling as part of the Manchester City side which became the Centurions in the 2017/18 season. He left the club with two Premier League titles, three Carabao Cup winners medal and an FA Cup winners medal. Sane made 135 appearances scoring 39 goals and added 46 assists during his time at the Etihad.
It remains to be seen if City’s interest in the winger is concrete. He has matured as a player during his time at Bayern Munich. With Jeremy Doku thriving since arriving at the Etihad, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to see Sane do similar.
The thought of Leroy Sane returning to the Etihad always excites Manchester City fans, it remains to be seen if another winger is on Manchester City’s summer shopping list.
