Barcelona rebuffed in move for Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sané

La Liga giants Barcelona have seen their advances knocked back by a key member of the attacking ranks at Bayern Munich.

The player in question? Leroy Sané.

That’s according to Diario Sport, who have this evening provided an insight into developments behind the scenes in Catalunya’s capital.

The powers that be at Barca, it is understood, recently made contact with the representatives of German international Sané, over the prospect of a move to Spain.

This comes amid an ongoing search for reinforcements on the flanks in the Blaugrana’s squad.

And Sané, for his part, was initially viewed as being open to discussions, ahead of the expiration of his contract in Munich in the summer of 2025.

Since, however, the 28-year-old has grown tired of waiting.

After Joan Laporta and his team failed to take any significant steps forward in efforts to bring him in, Sané’s head was turned once more, on this occasion back towards a renewal at the Allianz Arena.

In turn, it is now said to be highly likely that the explosive wide-man will go on to put pen to paper on fresh terms with Bayern, leaving Barcelona to ponder what might have been.
