Manchester City remain keen on keeping Leroy Sane and have not given up hope of tying the German down to a new long-term deal at the Etihad, sources have told

Sane had been keen on a move to Bayern Munich last summer but City rejected a bid of around £72m from the Bundesliga giants as the offer fell well short of the club's £100m+ valuation of the midfielder.

Bayern have maintained their interest in Sane throughout his rehabilitation but a January move was deemed unfeasible given the German is yet to resume full training and they have therefore decided to wait until the end of the season before making their move.

City do not view a departure as an inevitability and remain convinced that Sane can be persuaded to stay due to a growing sense in the German's camp that an immediate move to Bayern this summer would be an unnecessary risk.

Despite the likelyhood of Sane playing again this season, a full recovery from an ACL tear can take up to a year and the German's team are concerned that it may not be the opportune moment to make a big money move to Bayern.

Sane also feels a debt of gratitude towards City for the way he's been treated in the last six months and he appreciated the club's gesture to keep their contract offer on the table throughout his rehabilitation.

More: Manchester City FC. Pep Guardiola is certainly counting on having the German back for the Champions League knockout stages and believes that he's around a fortnight away from training with the rest of the group.
