Leroy Sane has reportedly sacked his agent amid speculation Bayern Munich are planning a fresh bid for his signature.
The Man City winger was heavily linked with a move to Bayern in the summer, but a potential transfer was curtailed after he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in August.
Sane is close to a return after several months on the sidelines, but it appears he sees his future away from the Etihad.
Sport1 report that Sane has now switched his representatives from David Beckham’s agency DB Venture Limited, to LIAN Sports – who also look after Bayern’s Jerome Boateng.
Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is said to have been made aware of Sane’s decision, and the German champions remain keen on signing him.
