Bayern Munich winger, Leroy Sane, has spoken out about rumors of interest from Liverpool and Manchester City. He mentioned that for now, he is solely focused on Bayern Munich and not thinking about any other club.
In the last three years, Sane has been a crucial player for Bayern Munich, delivering impressive performances on the wing for Die Roten.
Sane’s outstanding displays have caught the attention of Liverpool, and his former club, Manchester City, is also eager to bring him back to the Etihad Stadium.
When asked about the interest from these two clubs, Sane responded, “Honestly, I haven’t thought about anything regarding a transfer. I’m completely focused on Bayern Munich and not thinking about other clubs at the moment,” as quoted by Sportsmole.
Sane emphasized that, at present, he is not thinking about his future. His full focus is on helping Bayern Munich achieve success in the 2023/2024 season. “I don’t want to think about it because I want to concentrate fully on this season with Bayern,” added the winger.
It seems that Liverpool and Manchester City might be disappointed in their pursuit of Leroy Sane. He confirmed that Bayern Munich will always be his top priority, and the club is currently interested in discussing a new contract with him. “Bayern will always be my top priority, and currently, the club wants to talk to me about a new contract. We’ll see what happens after that,” he concluded.
Sane’s current contract at Allianz Arena will expire in 2025. If Liverpool and Man City are determined to recruit him, they would need to be prepared to pay around €80 million for his services.
In a sensational performance, Arsenal’s teenage player Chido Obi-Martin scored TEN GOALS as The Gunners thrashed Liverpool 14-3 in an U-16 match on Saturday (18/11).
Obi-Martin, who is only 15 years old, has previously played for Arsenal’s U-18, U-19, and U-21 squads but joined the U-16 team this weekend as the other three teams were not in action.
The wonderkid has signed a scholarship deal with Arsenal for the next season, a special agreement to secure a promising player, and has also trained with the first team. He aims to earn a promotion to Mikel Arteta’s senior squad in the future.
While Obi-Martin may not surpass the record of becoming the youngest player in Premier League history, as achieved by Ethan Nwaneri last season, who entered the game against Brentford at the age of 15 years, five months, and 28 days, he dreams of making his debut for the Arsenal senior squad someday.
Obi-Martin, who also scored a hat-trick for the U-18 Arsenal team against Southampton this season, may represent Denmark or England at the senior level in the future. He also has the opportunity to play for Nigeria due to his father’s heritage.
The young talent could feature for Arsenal’s U-21 against West Ham United on December 4, the U-19 squad against Lens on November 29, or play with The Gunners U-18 against Derby County on Saturday, November 25.
Liverpool’s new midfielder, Dominik Szoboszlai, does not want to be compared to the Reds legend, Steven Gerrard.
Dominik Szoboszlai became one of Liverpool’s new signings in the summer of 2023, with the Reds spending up to £60 million to acquire him from RB Leipzig.
The 23-year-old Hungarian midfielder was given the iconic number 8 jersey at Anfield, the same number once worn by Steven Gerrard. Szoboszlai has played 17 games in various competitions for Liverpool, making 12 appearances in the Premier League, contributing with 1 goal and 2 assists.
Despite the comparisons emerging between him and Steven Gerrard, Szoboszlai rejects such comparisons. He expressed that he does not want to be like Gerrard; he wants to be himself. However, he jokingly added that if Liverpool offered him the opportunity to have the same impact or career as Gerrard, he would sign it immediately.
Currently, Dominik Szoboszlai is focusing on playing with the Hungarian national team in the Euro 2024 Qualifiers. As the captain, he successfully led Hungary to qualify for the Euro 2024 finals after a 2-2 draw against Bulgaria. Szoboszlai contributed with 1 assist in that match.
Liverpool is expected to be active in the January 2024 transfer window, and one of the players linked with them is Andre Trindade. The Brazilian midfielder is speculated to join Liverpool after the Copa Libertadores final.
Goncalo Inacio, a young defender from Sporting Lisbon, has also been associated with Liverpool ahead of the January transfer window. The 22-year-old central defender could provide competition in the heart of Liverpool’s defense, potentially replacing Ibrahima Konate.
If Liverpool secures Leroy Sane’s services, the German winger would compete for a starting position on the left-wing with Luis Diaz, who has been a key player for Jurgen Klopp in that position.
In summary, the January transfer window could see Liverpool making strategic moves to strengthen their squad, with potential additions in defense, midfield, and attack.
