Manchester City and Liverpool fans are crying onto the shoulders of one another in the Transfer Tavern and it’s not just because a problem in our kitchen has meant the chef has to cut the onions at the bar.
The Daily Express states that Barcelona are ready to enter the market for Schalke sensation Leroy Sane, rivalling interest from Manchester City and Liverpool.
Recently-capped German international Sane is developing into one of the hottest prospects on the continent, with the 20-year-old earning rave reviews for his displays with the Bundesliga side so far this term.
Sane has recently had a £40m price-tag slapped upon his head by Schalke but interest continues to rise, with the youngster’s versatility being extremely appealing as he can play across the front-line and in the wide areas of an attack.
He burst onto the scene last season when he set-up the winner and scored one as Schalke defeated Real Madrid in the Champions League, a 4-3 victory that turned heads and led to many accumulators in the Transfer Tavern being ruined that night.
Our landlord is a big fan of Sane but believes he should stay at Schalke for a while longer, stating that regular first-team football is crucially important to the youngster at this stage of his career.
Will Sane be the latest big-money addition in the Premier League? Let us know in the comments below!
