Manchester City try to include David Alaba in Leroy Sane deal as Bayern Munich make contact. Sane is set to leave after rejecting a new contract.
City are exploring the possibility of including Alaba in the deal, according to the Athletic.
The Austria star, normally a left-back, has been playing in different roles for Bayern this year.
Alaba, 28, has been playing centre-back with Alphonso Davies being switched to left-wing back.
But Bayern don’t want to lose Alaba and could make him see out the final year of his contract before letting him leave for free.
Sane also has one year left on his deal and Bayern don’t want to pay City’s £90m valuation for the winger.
The clubs are currently at a stalemate but City exploring ways to get the deal done suggests talks have restarted.
