In doing so they were set to go toe-to-toe with the Reds after a spike in his form for Bayern Munich this season.

However, fresh reports in Spain reveal LaLiga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are also in the running.

According to Sport, Bayern could look to cash in on Sane in the summer with his contract expiring in 2025.

The report indicates there has been no agreement between the German and his club over a contract extension.

It adds that Sane, 27, has not shut the door on a move to Spain.

And this has put both Xavi‘s and Carlo Ancelotti‘s sides on red alert.

Reigning Spanish league champions Barcelona are looking at a move with former Leeds winger Raphinha being linked with an exit from the Nou Camp.

Meanwhile, Champions League specialists Madrid are looking to improve their depth in attack after Vinicius Jr. was ruled out for two and a half months after getting injured on international duty with Brazil last week.


On contract talk, Sane said he had not “thought about it yet”.

He added: “The club wants to have conversations, but for now I want to focus on this season.”

Sane has scored nine goals and added seven assists in all competitions for Bayern this season.

The winger previously scored 25 goals with 32 assists in the Premier League for City before leaving in 2020.

He chipped in with an assist for Germany in their 3-2 defeat to Turkey over the weekend.
