Manchester City is looking for someone to replace Leroy Sane if the latter signs up with Bayern Munich. There were rumors that Sane will join former manager Niko Kovac in the German champion squad last July. However, the transfer didn’t materialize.
According to reports, Manchester City is considering Kingsley Coman. The French international played under Pep Guardiola for one season in Munich. Man City sees Coman as the best replacement for Sane, who is suffering from an ACL injury since August.
Coman started his football career at Paris Saint-Germain. He moved to Juventus and then settled in Bayern, where he played 139 matches in all tournaments. Also, he scored 28 goals. On the other hand, Sane started with Schalke in 2016. He has 39 goals in 134 games.
Manchester City Scouting Other Players
Aside from Coman, the team is considering Leicester pair Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans. They are just some of the center-back options for the team. The two players impressed sportsbook pay per head providers this season. Their combined performance helped the Foxes get second place in the Premier League.
City is fourth in the rankings. It is a point behind Liverpool. It failed to find a replacement for Vincent Kompany last summer. As a result, the team struggles at the center-back position. According to pay per head reviews and news sites, manager Pep Guardiola wanted Harry Maguire. However, he signed up with Manchester United.
Without a good defender, City will keep on looking. Guardiola told sports news outlets that he would not sign up a new center-half in the next transfer window. As a result, he is using midfielder Fernandinho as a substitute for the injured Aymeric Laporte.
City tried to get Evans from West Brom in 2017. However, its bids failed to materialize that led to his signing with Leicester.
