Bayern Munich have turned down requests for Leroy Sane for 90min information – the German winger is not to be sold.

The 26-year-old was first linked with a departure from the Allianz Arena in the summer after Sadio Mane arrived from Liverpool FC and Sane’s pre-season saw very inconsistent performances in the Bayern shirt. Again and again the ex-Schalke was exposed to criticism, especially in his body language.

But although Mane was set immediately after his arrival in Munich and there is also immense competition in the other offensive positions, Sane has been able to deliver properly so far.

The 26-year-old has five goals and three assists in 13 Bundesliga appearances; he has also scored four goals in four games in the Champions League, which Bayern believe underscores his importance to the team.

Sources have confirmed to 90min that a number of clubs, including Arsenal, have inquired about Sane’s situation – but Bayern have made it clear they have no intention of letting Sane go.

It is said that while the 26-year-old is considering his options himself, he is positive that Nagelsmann trusts him. It’s extremely unlikely he’ll be pushing for a move at this stage.

Bayern, who didn’t directly replace Robert Lewandowski with another striker in the summer, are happy to get through the season with their current attacking squad, which is extensive to say the least. In addition to Mane, Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala and Sane, they also have Kingsley Coman, Thomas Müller, Mathys Tel and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting available.
