Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says Pep Guardiola should not be so quick to dismiss the German side’s hopes of signing Leroy Sane from Manchester City.

The Bundesliga side have been open about their desire to sign the 23-year-old but City are trying to convince him to sign a new contract.

Guardiola suggested this week that there had been no approach from his former side.

City are demanding at least £90 million for Sane, while his wage demands are said to be excessive by Bayern’s standards.

“I don’t know if Pep knows what’s going on in his club. No idea. Let’s wait,” he told Bild. “If there is something to announce, then we will do that, but it’s not that far.”

“It is his decision, it’s the same as what happened with [Jadon] Sancho. We want him, we are giving everything, but in the end, if he doesn’t want, what can you do? Nothing.”
