Four Leroy Sane Replacements

Bayern Munich have confirmed their eagerness to sign Leroy Sane from Man City this summer.

Bayern president Uli Hoeness confirmed earlier this week that the Bundesliga champions are interested in the 23-year-old flier.

“We are dealing with this player,” Hoeness said of Sane. “I’ve already seen many times how good he is. That’s a player who can immediately take us higher, who improves the team.”

Here are four Leroy Sane replacements should he return to Germany.

Philippe Coutinho

Manchester United Move For Philippe Coutinho

A little left-field, this one, but Philippe Coutinho could be a shout as a replacement for Sane.

City already benefit from having Bernardo Silva on the right flank so who is to say the addition of Coutinho on the opposite side of the pitch wouldn't make the Blues an even more dangerous proposition?

Coutinho would likely be attainable for a fee lower than the £142million Barcelona paid Liverpool for his services 16 months ago.

The Brazilian is very much a Pep Guardiola player.

The 19-year-old is primarily an attacking midfielder but can operate on either flank and also as a lone striker.

Wiith his treble against Eintracht Frankfurt last month, Felix became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in Europa League history.

Felix will not be allowed to leave the Lisbon club for anything less than his €120million release clause.

Wilfried Zaha

City were linked with the 26-year-old last summer, however, if Sane leaves that could open up the possibility for him to return to Manchester – this time on the blue side.

The Ivorian has told Crystal Palace he wants to leave the club and he surely aspires to play in the Champions League.

Palace would demand a big fee for Zaha but he would be cheaper than Felix and has Premier League experience in abundance.

The 22-year-old ended the season as their joint-top scorer with 14 goals and also scored three times in eight appearances for Brazil after making his senior debut for the Seleção last September.

There is no suggestion he is on City's radar but he would certainly fit the bill.
