- Leroy Sane is back and ready to go for Manchester City when the league resumes
- Bayern Munich are back on his trail having failed to land him last summer
- The German League giants were initially meant to pay £70m for the forward before COVID-19 outbreak
German League giants Bayern Munich have reportedly offered Manchester City a sum of £35 million for their winger Leroy Sane.
The 24-year-old has been out of action since last August after picking an anterior cruciate ligament injury during his side's Community Shield clash against Liverpool.
He has since returned to training but the suspension of the Premier League has kept him from kicking a ball nearly a year after.

The English topflight was suspended in mid-March owing to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic currently ravaging the world.
According to the Mirror, the Bavarians are now hoping they can secure the winger's signature for much lesser than they had originally planned with the economic hardship caused by COVID-19.
Bayern were heavily linked with a move for the attacker last year but the injury he suffered ended the pursuit abruptly.
Meanwhile, German news outlet Sport Bild claims the Bundesliga champions are said to have reached an agreement with Sane, and will now focus on trying to drive down the asking price.
They got their bid started with a £35 million offer for the Premier League club - £11m less than what City paid Schalke for Sane in 2016.
Sane would have cost Bayern about £70m before the outbreak but former boss Jupp Heynckes claims the forward has not yet proved he is worth such a big transfer fee.
Heynckes said: "For me, he has not yet made a breakthrough to becoming an absolute top player.
“I think this is a player at a crossroads. Will he keep working hard on himself or will he remain just as an exceptional talent?
“He has to be ready to make the next big step because there is no use in flashing the talent from time to time. “I also honestly tell you that I don’t consider the price justifiable.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero insists players are “scared of returning to action” even as the Premier League continues to make preparations for a comeback in June.
The Premier League’s so-called Project Restart is fully underway with a number of measures against the coronavirus being put in place.
