Eberl on Sané’s future: „We want players who identify with the club“

Leroy Sane

Leroy Sané’s future at FC Bayern has been the subject of intense speculation for some time now. Is a contract extension imminent or is a transfer on the cards? Sporting director Max Eberl has now commented on the rumours and explained his view of the winger’s situation.

In an interview with Sport BILD, Eberl emphasised the club’s fundamental stance: „No club – including Bayern Munich – wants to lose players on a free transfer if they can’t agree on a contract extension.“

Eberl also made it clear that it is not just sporting quality that counts for FC Bayern: „We want players who stand for Bayern Munich, who want to identify with the club. I want this motivation to be represented in the squad.“

Eberl shed light on the discussion surrounding Sané, taking into account the fluctuations in his performances. Despite recognising Sané’s „outstanding qualities“, the player’s future has yet to be clarified: „We have to decide with him: What does he want, what are his plans for the future? Does he have the drive, the desire to go into the future with us, to tackle something new? In general, it’s always about a commitment to the club,“ said Eberl.

Sané extension could cost 100 million euros

The question of salary is likely to play an important role in the negotiations surrounding Sané. His current contract, which runs until 2025, has led to discussions about the financial terms of a possible extension. The German football magazine kicker had reported that concrete talks about the future have yet to materialise. Sané is reportedly looking to extend his contract by four or five years, with a salary in line with his current salary – €20 million per year. A five-year contract extension could therefore cost Bayern up to 100 million euros in total.

Despite these challenges, the door is still open for Sané to stay at Bayern, even though his name has been linked with other top European clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain, FC Barcelona and Liverpool FC.
