According to a recent Bild report, Leroy Sane, a Manchester City star, has been told he needs to make a cut in wages to join Bayern Munich.
The German champions have been chasing Sane for over a year, with his injury early in the campaign ensuring that Sane remains in Etihad this season by default.
Sane's potential is there for everyone to see, but whether or not he can demonstrate it in the Bundesliga is yet to be seen. The city has great squadron depth, but they will be well aware of the fact that Sane is a serious commodity and, if they allow him to slip through his fingers, he can haunt them again.
Either way, both parties need to overcome the obstacle that is the uncertainty surrounding the summer's next transfer window before trying to get beyond the finish line.
