Manchester City ‘tracking Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman in case Leroy Sane makes move to Bundesliga giants’
Manchester City are reportedly keeping tabs on Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman in case Leroy Sane joins the Bundesliga giants.
Sane was strongly linked with a move to the Allianz Arena during the summer transfer window before suffering an ACL injury in the Community Shield win over Liverpool.
The injury is likely to keep Sane out of action for seven months, but Bayern remain keen on the winger and City are preparing for life without him.

According to Sky Sports, City boss Pep Guardiola believes Coman could be the perfect replacement if the Germany international decides to leave.

Should Sane move to Bayern, it could compromise Coman’s first team place, with Serge Gnabry and Ivan Perisic already providing competition in wide areas.
Coman has made 10 Bundesliga appearances so far this season, but has found the back of the net just once.
The France international joined Bayern from Juventus in 2017, having previously emerged at Paris Saint-Germain.
Coman has also won 21 caps for France and scored four goals at international level since making his debut for Les Bleus in 2015.
