Bayern have long been planning a move for Manchester City winger Leroy Sane as they seek to rebuild over the coming months as they look set to move on several aging players, with Rafinha, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery already departed.
But the Bayern president Hoeness admits a deal to sign Sane is financially difficult at the moment,
”I do not have exact numbers yet, but I think that the financial framework is very difficult. The whole package is difficult.”
Hoeness recently said that Bayern will not surpass the €80m (£70.5m/$89m)they spent to capture Hernandez from Atletico Madrid.
”We’re not playing Monopoly here. We are a football club. We have reached a limit with €80 million, and I don’t think that we’ll exceed that in future transfers,” he said ahead of the DFB Pokal Cup final.
The 67-year-old did add that it is likely that his club will be more active in the transfer market this summer.
”We have already brought in two or three players and will certainly not stop changing the team, and we will be back in action after [the cup final],” he continued.
”If Hasan [Salihamidzic] and Karl-Heinz [Rummenigge] have good suggestions, we will not oppose it in the supervisory board.”
