Man City boss Pep Guardiola has given Bayern Munich the 'green light' to sign Leroy Sane

Pep Guardiola is happy for Leroy Sane to be sold

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has given the green light for Bayern Munich to sign Leroy Sane.

The German club's interest in the flying winger has been known for some time, with City previously granting them permission to start negotiations.

And it seems they have progressed nicely, with Guardiola now willing to sanction the deal, according to the ever-reliable Bild.

The Spaniard and Uli Hoeness are still in contact after their days at the Allianz Arena together.

It is thought that Sane would cost the club between €70-100m and he would be the ideal replacement for the outgoing Franck Ribery.

The Frenchman and Arjen Robben are both leaving Bayern this summer, leaving Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry as the only options out wide for Niko Kovac.

There is Canadian starlet Alphonso Davies, but he is probably not ready for regular first-team action just yet.

Bayern are reportedly targeting a very exciting trio of signings, with Sane the headline act.

Sane has been on the bench more often than not in 18/19

As per AS, Kovac and Hoeness want the 23-year-old, Atletico Madrid's Rodri and RB Leipzig's Timo Werner to start the new era at Bayern.

The thought of Sane, Werner, Coman and Gnabry as pacy forward options is simply mouthwatering.

As for midfield, you won't find two better ball players than Rodri and Thiago Alcantara.

If Bayern can complete the triple signing, they may be one of the favourites to claim the Champions League crown once again.

Rodri has been brilliant with Atletico

The Bundesliga champions already have French internationals Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard arriving to bolster their defence as well.

As for City, Sane has become a peripheral player due to the emergence of Bernardo Silva.

However, he did score 10 goals and assist 10 more in the Premier League this season.

Back in his homeland, the former Schalke man could become one of the world's best.
