The German champions have actually held an enduring interest in Sane and were greatly linked with a move for the attacker last summer, just for Sane to remain at the Etihad Arena and consequently suffer a knee ligament injury which has actually sidelined him for the whole season up until now.
More just recently Bayern have actually likewise been linked with Werner, who is believed to be Liverpool’s leading transfer target, and Matthaus thinks that the striker would be a much better suitable for Hansi Flick‘s side than his international colleague.
” My soft area for Timo Werner is popular. And I do not suggest to state that I do not think Leroy Sane isgreat You get the sensation that Flick and [Oliver] Kahn are more most likely to see Timo Werner as the player who might be much better fit to this club,” Matthaus informed Sky Deutschland.
” He is more versatile in the field, his character might correspond a bit more to the desires of those accountable. The danger of agitation is substantially lower. He can play at the very front in [Robert] Lewandowski’s location, hanging behind or on the wings. And he must likewise be more affordable.
“I don’t understand why they didn’t sign him before when he was on a silver platter. But better late than never. He has clearly developed again this season. Sane was unable to make up ground due to his long injury. Both players would be total added value for Bayern. But if I had to choose today, I would be making room for Timo Werner.”
Werner has actually straight contributed to 28 goals in 25 Bundesliga appearances this season, a tally just Jadon Sancho can beat.
