Bayern Munich have reportedly opened talks with Manchester Cityregarding a summer move for Germany international Leroy Sane.
The Bundesliga giants have been given permission to speak to the 23-year-old's representatives "with a view to agreeing contractual terms," according to Duncan Castles at the Daily Record.
The Premier League champions would prefer to keep hold of the Germany international but director of football Txiki Begiristian "has told friends he may be forced to sell in the coming window."
Sane has helped Manchester City retain their Premier League crown this season and win the Carabao Cup but is not first-choice for manager Pep Guardiola.
The German has only started 21 Premier League matches for the champions but has 10 goals and 10 assists in the top flight this season.
