The Manchester City star is expected to leave the club this summer, after failing to agree to a new contract at the Etihad, with the Bundesliga champions emerging as the likeliest suitor.
Bayern were closing on the capture of the German international last month. But, their £70 million offer was reportedly rejected by City.
It is now believed that the Premier League champions are expecting over £100 million for the German international – as stated in the report.
Therefore, the Bavarians need to break their club record fee of £72 million they paid in order to attain the services of Lucas Hernandez if they are to sign Sane this summer.
Sane could be a viable replacement for the departing duo of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery next season.
As for Pep Guardiola’ side, the departure of the German attacker won’t be that big of a blow given the fact that both Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling have stepped up to the plate in the recently concluded season.

But, at the same time, selling Sane for a fee around £90-100 million could help the Sky Blues fund move for top-target Joao Felix.
