Leroy Sane's time at Manchester City is all but over.

The Germany international will initially cost Bayern Munich an initial €49million (£44.5m), rising to €60m (£54.5m) and is expected in Bavaria to complete his transfer on Wednesday, Stats Perform News understands.

A key performer as City claimed back-to-back Premier League titles in 2017-18 and 2018-19 is on the way out and speculation will mount over who Guardiola might pursue to bolster his attack.

The City manager has suggested he could simply operate with the forward options he has, as has been the case this season due to Sane's cruciate knee ligament injury.

However, the near-surrender of their domestic crown to Liverpool in his absence tells its own story, while the decision not to secure a specialist replacement for departing captain Vincent Kompany last year might weigh heavily upon the prospect of a similar route being taken.

The twin factors of the coronavirus pandemic's expected economic impact on football and City's two-season Champions League ban, which is currently under appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), could also influence whether any of the names listed below can be brought to Manchester.

MIKEL OYARZABAL

Real Sociedad star Oyarzabal hit double figures for league goals in both of the past two seasons, netting 12 in 2017-18 and 13 in 2018-19 – outstripping the 10 Sane netted in each campaign.

FC Bayern - Hasan Salihamidzic: "Very good talks" with Leroy Sane and Manchester City - Pep Guardiola thanks

 FC Bayern - Hasan Salihamidzic: © Getty / Goal sports director Hasan Salihamidzic does not yet want to announce the upcoming transfer from Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich. "We are in very good discussions with the management of Leroy and Manchester City, I can confirm that. But now we all have to be patient a bit," said Salihamidzic on Wednesday. City team manager Pep Guardiola has meanwhile confirmed the upcoming transfer.

Arteta, who was beaten 3-0 by City during their most recent clash, insists his relationship with Guardiola remains as strong as ever despite their new managerial rivalry. Mikel Arteta ( left ) is still in close contact with Pep Guardiola despite leaving Manchester City .

Naturally left footed and, unlike City attackers Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez, at home operating on that flank, the 23-year-old has nine this time around. A €75million release clause means he fits the model of signing up-and-coming LaLiga stars with sensible valuations in their contracts that saw Aymeric Laporte and Rodri end up at Eastlands.

LEON BAILEY

Livewire Bayer Leverkusen winger Bailey was first linked to City in 2018, when Guardiola ultimately plumped for Mahrez to bolster a title-winning forward line. The Jamaica international's output has dwindled since – scoring five times in each of the past two seasons and supplying a total of four assists. In 2017-18 he boasted nine goals and laid on a further six.

Bailey's considerable natural gifts – electric pace, excellent one-against-one dribbling and a sweet left foot – means he retains admirers and, as a stylistic fit for replacing Sane, Guardiola might consider the 22-year-old to be a diamond worth polishing.

Jurgen Klopp: “A red jersey would look very good on Jadon Sancho“

  Jurgen Klopp: “A red jersey would look very good on Jadon Sancho“ At a live event with BILD Sport, Jurgen Klopp was asked about the possibility of Liverpool signing Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho. Here’s how he responded: “A red jersey would look very good on Jadon Sancho but I don’t think such a transfer will take place this summer. He is a very interesting player. If he moved to Liverpool, I would be the most surprised of all!” Speculation about Sancho’s future has been rife for a few months, with Liverpool just one of the teams who were linked with a move for the England international.

Sane leaving Man City : Bailey ? Sancho ? Traore ? Who might Guardiola bring in ? Pep Guardiola discusses Leroy Sane alternatives. Guardiola recently confirmed that Sane has rejected several contract offers and expects him to depart at the end of this season or next summer, when his current

Sancho unveiled a ‘Justice for George Floyd’ T-shirt after scoring in the game, a gesture for which he received a booking. Sancho was one of a number of players to display statements of solidarity with Floyd, who died while being restrained by police in Minnesota.

FERRAN TORRES

Torres, who turned 20 in February, has enjoyed a stunning breakout campaign at Valencia after starring in Spain's European Under-19 Championship triumph last year. He scored both goals in the final win over Portugal after dispatching the decisive penalty in the shoot-out to see off semi-final opponents France.

Super Deporte reported last month that Ferran heads the list of possible Sane heirs compiled by City's director of football Txiki Begiristain. A skilful and direct winger capable of operating on either flank, his big move is probably a matter of when rather than if.

KINGSLEY COMAN

Familiar with Guardiola's methods having played for his Bayern side, France international Coman generally attempts dribbles (6.3 per 90 minutes this term, 8.9 in 2015-16 under Guardiola) more frequently than Sane, whose direct approach has been missed by City this year.

He certainly fits the profile with respect to his attributes and age, however the 24-year-old's persistent injury woes would be a major concern.

JADON SANCHO

From the over-arching CAS situation to Sancho's fractious departure from City in 2017, there are plenty of good reasons to assume the hottest property on the European transfer market is far more likely to end up on the other side of Manchester. However, City retain a "matching right" on Sancho – meaning Borussia Dortmund must inform them of any bid received – and must be tempted to try their hand.

Leroy Sane: Change to FC Bayern apparently hesitates due to lack of agreement on transfer

 Leroy Sane: Change to FC Bayern apparently hesitates due to lack of agreement on transfer © Imago Images The transfer from Leroy Sane (24) to FC Bayern Munich was already considered to be almost fixed, but according to the Telegraph, Bayern and Manchester City are still far from an agreement. Now even a future at Cityzens seems conceivable again. Accordingly, the German record champions are not willing to pay a transfer fee of more than 40 million euros.

British authorities say their French counterparts found parts of two seat cushions on a beach near Surtainville in northwest France. Britain’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch says “from a preliminary examination we have concluded that it is likely that the cushions are from the missing aircraft.”

The England star, 20, boasts a staggering 33 goal involvements (17 goals, 16 assists) in 32 Bundesliga games this season, dwarfing an impressive 26 (12 goals, 14 assists) from last time around. City have tended not to get involved in astronomical one-off deals – Rodri, at £62.8m, is their record buy – but Sancho presents a case that demands they make an exception.

ADAMA TRAORE

"It was always clear it would happen one day, and now it has," Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp observed earlier this season as Traore shifted rapidly from frustrating potential to a player wrecking defences across England on Wolves' behalf. Despite being a graduate of Barcelona's academy, the explosive wideman's seemingly off-the-cuff style could frustrate Guardiola as much as it delights.

But added precision to his play means the 24-year-old is now one of the most dangerous attackers in the Premier League. Three of his four goals this season came in wins over City, he has nine assists and his dribbling output of 9.1 per 90 minutes is relentless.

Bayern's sports director Hasan Salihamidzic was confident that they were in "very good discussions" with the management of Sané and with his club. Man City's coach Pep Guardiola said it looked like he was going to Munich. The offensive player has a contract with the Citizens until summer 2021. According to media reports, the transfer fee should amount to around 50 million euros.
