- Leroy Sane could be ruled out for about six to nine months after suffering terrible injury
- The German star limped off Man City's Community Shield victory over Liverpool
- Bayern could however end their chase for the £145m rated winger
Manchester City winger could be on the sideline for close to nine months if confirmed he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in their Community Shield triumph over Liverpool last weekend.
The German star limped off the pitch after just 13 minutes of action at Wembley Stadium, which could end Bayern Munich's £145 million for the wide-man.
Sane collided with Trent Alexander-Arnold in the early minutes of the meeting and that ended the player's time on the field.
The Bavarians have been on the 23-year-old's trail since the departure of both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben at the end of last season.
They tried to lure Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi but the youngster opted to stay with the Blues under the management of Frank Lampard.
SunSport however reports that the Bundesliga champions are willing to cough out the mega price tag placed on the forward before suffering terrible injury last Sunday.
The former Schalke star was said to have informed his teammates of his plot to force a move away from the Etihad Stadium on deadline day.
Meanwhile, Bayern boss Niko Kovac said: “Our leadership is very engaged in the situation there. "I'm confident and assume that we will get him."
City boss Pep Guardiola on the other hand wants to keep the winger at the club despite the Bavarians heavy interests in him.

He said: "He has to decide. If he wants and there is an agreement, then it's good. “But if he wants to leave, he can do it. We will be sad - hopefully he stays."
Meanwhile, Sane's agent was said to have thrashed out a package of around £16.6m-a-year in wages – nearly £320,000-a-week.
Sane joined Man City from Schalke 04 in 2016 in a deal around £37 million and currently earns £90,000.
