Manchester United fans and their Manchester City counterparts jhave had to be separated in the Transfer Tavern this afternoon, after coming to blows following reports that the two arch-rivals are fighting for the same big signing.
The Mirror says Manchester United are keen to push City all the way for the services of Schalke ace Leroy Sane, who is heavily tipped with a move to the Premier League this summer after starring in German football.
Incoming Citizens boss Pep Guardiola has earmarked the young German international as a prime candidate for his first signing of the summer but their cross city rivals want to ensure that doesn’t happen and will join the fight for the 20-year-old winger.
United desperately need a creative wide player for next season, with last summer’s £25m acquisition Memphis Depay failing to make his mark, but their absence of Champions League football may make negotiations extremely difficult.
Our landlord believes that City will be in pole position to land this star and feels Guardiola will have already made initial contact.
Which Manchester club will Sane end up at? Let us know in the comments below!
