Bayern Munich remain determined to sign Leroy Sane this summer.
The Bundesliga champions have so far been scared off by Manchester City’s staggering £90million valuation of the Germany international winger.
But 23-year-old Sane, who started barely half the Blues' Premier League games last season, is still expected to become a high-profile casualty of Pep Guardiola's off-season surgery on his championship, Carabao Cup and FA Cup winners as he continues to chase elusive Champions League glory.
Bayern club president Uli Hoeness has admitted they have so far been priced out by City’s “insane” financial demands, but the German giants' executive chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge suggests they are still very much in the hunt for the former Schalke star.
Rummenigge said: “The state of things with Sane is that he will return from his holidays this week. While on his vacation he didn’t want to have any talks and wanted to think about his personal plans on his future.
“We have to wait to see if something will happen. It is no secret that we are searching for a winger after Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben left the club — two players that shaped the face of FC Bayern for many years.
