Manchester City are prepared to sell Leroy Sane this summer – despite their hard-line stance with Bayern Munich.

Etihad sources have laughed off suggestions the Germany international would be made available for as little as £35million – insisting they would rather let his contract run down than see him leave for such a derisory fee.

But it’s understood he will be allowed to go if he refuses to sign an extension to his deal, which enters its final 12 months at the end of the season.
