There are reports today linking Manchester City’s and Germany international Leroy Sane with Juventus in what would appear to be fanciful at best.
Sane has not had the best start to the season after being an integral part of the Pep Guardiola’s team that march to the Premier League title, netting 14 goals. The 22-year-old’s contribution was huge for Manchester City as he provided some high-quality assists for the likes of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
The winger also failed to make the Germany squad for the 2018 World Cup held in Russia with speculations suggesting Sane’s relationship with the Die Mannschaft’s boss Joachim Low are strained.
Sane this season, has registered five Premier League appearances of which three of these were as sub and scoring one goals and creating one assist. Sane’s is priced at 5/7 by moplay free bet to make the move when the transfer window reopens in January.
That being said, there are speculations from Italy suggesting that Manchester City are open to agreeing terms with Juventus for the transfer of Sane – but only if Paulo Dybala would be included in any deal that would see the German winger leave Etihad.
This may seem a cheeky request from Manchester City but Dybala’s situation at Juventus looks a bit comparable to Sane. The Argentine has fallen down the pecking order since the summer arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. And on the other hand, Juventus fans are unlikely to embrace the departure of one of their favourite players, even if he’s no longer the number one poster boy in Turin.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men have been all-guns blazing in attack but there have been questions raised about their inconsistency in defence.
The story suggesting a swap deal between Man City and Juve first appeared on the Italian football website calciomercato.
Dybala, since joining Juventus from Palermo four seasons ago, has registered 144 appearances in all outings and have netted 68 goals while Sane, who joined Man City from Schalke 04 in 2014 for an initial £37 million fee, has 93 appearances in all competitions with 24 goals to his name for the Citizens.
Following Manchester City’s 3-0 victory at Oxford United in the midweek, welcomes Brighton & Hove Albion to the Etihad Stadium for the 7th Premier League fixtures of the season and are backed to earn all three points against the Seagulls.
