Leroy Sane helped Manchester City to a second consecutive Premier League title, finishing with 16 goals and 18 assists; that is despite playing just 55% of the available minutes.
It seems that Bayern Munich have taken notice and believe that the German is their heir to Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben. It gives the Cityzens a small problem but not one that cannot be solved.
Here are three replacements for Leroy Sane.
Chiesa has an eye for goal and creativity in the final third that matches the German. Moreover, his speed and size make him very hard to get off the ball.
But it’s his intelligence and maturity that really make him an excellent prospect. It’s one of the several reasons why he’s worn the captain’s armband over the course of the season.
As his move to Atletico Madrid hasn’t worked, it gives Manchester City a chance. They need that injection of creativity if Sane leaves and his partnership with Bernardo Silva will prove to be lethal.
The two played together alongside Kylian Mbappe and Benjamin Mendy during Monaco’s title-winning 2016/17 side, doing fabulous things.
That’s something Guardiola should try and replicate, especially given the success that Silva’s had at the Etihad.
Arguably the best player on this list to replace Sane.
At the age of 19, he's one of the most creative players in Europe and arguably the best replacement for Leroy Sane.

Sure, any fee might be upwards of £100million but it’s peanuts if Man City sell Leroy Sane.
