Plenty of Manchester City fans have been reacting to a tweet from German football journalist Christian Falk about the possibility of Leroy Sane being sold to Liverpool.
Sport Bild’s head of football tweeted (via @cfbayern) that the Anfield club had shown an interest in signing the winger, who dismissed the idea as he doesn’t want to swap Manchester City for a direct rival and instead desires a move to Bayern Munich.
True: @LFC was interested in @LeroySane19. BUT: @LeroySane19 knows that as a player from @ManCity cannot switch to @LFC . he wouldn't do that to fans. therefore the transfer was never an option for him. moreover: @LeroySane19 only wants to go to @FCBayern https://t.co/LpGHPo7XSa

The Bundesliga champions had reportedly lined up a transfer offer of €100m (£87.13m) for the 24-year-old last summer, according to Sport Bild, and they remain keen on trying to bring Sane back to Germany. Last week, The Telegraph reported that Bayern are considering a bid of £56.75m for the player, whose contract at Manchester City is set to expire next year.
The notion of Sane going to Liverpool sparked a mixture of reactions from these City fans on Twitter – some thought gleefully about the possibility of Sadio Mane being displaced at Anfield while others baulked at the idea of the Premier League champions selling a prolific winger to a club with whom they have developed an intense rivalry.
If Man City sell Leroy Sane, which club would you rather him join?

I’d rather sell him for pennies on the dollar to Bayern than for any price to Liverpool. pic.twitter.com/CL9tOpAanW
