Manchester City are contemplating a move for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman if they lose Leroy Sané to the Bundesliga giants.
Sané was heavily pursued by Bayern last summer and it's expected they reignite their interest at the end of the season, with the winger himself keen on making the move.
If City do lose Sané, they want to bring in a high-level replacement, and Sky Sports claim that Coman could be their man. Pep Guardiola worked with Coman during his time in Germany and is said to be a huge fan of the Frenchman.
The 23-year-old would be competing with Sané for minutes at the Allianz Arena, so there is a chance that Bayern may be open to parting ways with Coman.
However, 90min understands that City are also looking at a move for Real Sociedad attacker Mikel Oyarzabal, and they are eager to activate his release clause of around £68m if they find themselves needing to replace Sané.
Club officials understand that activating Oyarzabal's release clause would make it fairly easy to replace Sané, whereas they would need to try and negotiate a deal for Coman, who is still under contract in Germany until the summer of 2023.
Sané has his heart set on a move to Bayern, but City are not prepared to let him leave for cheap. He still has 18 months remaining on his contract, and the Citizens would look for a fee of at least £80m to sell.
He is currently recovering from an ACL injury which he picked up in the Community Shield victory over Liverpool in August, and he is not expected to return to action until February at the earliest.
Before he suffered that injury, Bayern were expected to pursue Sané in the January transfer window. However, they would prefer to wait until the summer to see whether Sané has made a full recovery from his injury.
