Reported Liverpool target Leroy Sane is understood to be stalling on signing a new contract at Bayern Munich.
BILD reports that the German international will now ‘take his time until after the European Championships to make his decision’.
This is despite the 27-year-old having initially given the impression that he was willing to extend his terms in Munich.
The German outlet goes on to suggest that this could inevitably lead to increased interest in the right-sided winger and more expensive contract demands.
Theoretically, this could open the door for Liverpool to make a move this summer for the former Manchester City star.
Whether we’d be prepared to improve on Sane’s alleged £331,611-a-week salary at Bayern (according to Capology, via FBref) remains to be seen.
It’s already rather close to the fresh cap we set with Salah’s reported wage of £350,000-a-week.
Frankly, we can’t see the club being particularly open to the possibility of going beyond this.
