Kahn hints 'economically careful' Bayern could wait until Sane's contract ends
Leroy Sane has been strongly linked with Bayern Munich, but Oliver Kahn insists the Bundesliga champions are not in a rush to act.Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola confirmed on Friday that Germany international Sane has informed his employers he will not sign a new deal, meaning he will either be sold later this year or depart when his contract expires in 2021.
Pep Guardiola "interfered in medical matters" at Bayern Munich, according to former team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, who says the highly-rated coach thought he "knew everything better than I did".
Guardiola was drafted in to replace Jupp Heynckes in the Allianz Arena hot seat in the summer of 2013, inheriting a treble-winning squad brimming with world-class talent.
The Spaniard had already established himself as arguably the finest manager in Europe by that time, after assembling one of the greatest teams in history at Barcelona between 2008 and 2012.
As expected, Bayern continued to dominate the domestic scene in Germany with Guardiola at the helm, but he was unable to deliver success in Europe.

The 49-year-old picked up seven major trophies during his time at the Allianz, including three Bundesliga titles, before moving onto a new challenge in the Premier League with Manchester City in 2016.
Muller-Wohlfahrt, whose 40-year stint as Bayern's first-team doctor ended in June, recalls being frustrated by Guardiola's input when it came to assessing the physical condition of the players.
The 77-year-old told: "It was just that I couldn't put up with the fact that a young trainer - who was very successful and who is probably one of the really, really big ones - interfered in medical matters and knew everything better than I did."
Muller-Wohlfahrt went on to reveal that although he didn't always see eye to eye with Guardiola at Bayern, he still enjoys a good relationship with the current City boss.
