Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness has admitted the club might not lure Germany international Leroy Sane out of Manchester City due to ‘insane’ fees.
Sane's future at the Etihad Stadium has been the subject of much debate in recent months and he has been linked with a big-money to Bayern, who are in the market for reinforcements following the exits of veterans Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
"You have to be a bit sceptical," Hoeness told the Kicker. "It's unlikely that it will work. It's about the sums of money [involved]. They're insane."
Reports in Germany suggest the first bid of €80million has already been rejected by City and Bayern president Hoeness said last week that the "financial framework is difficult".
The winger scored 10 Premier League goals and provided as many assists as City retained their title last month.
Sane who is contracted at the Etihad until 2021 has found less game time in the just concluded season and has been at City for the past three seasons, where he has won two Premier League titles and
Bayern, who won the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal this season, is set for something of a rebuild, with Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard already joining the side.
