The Germany winger tore his anterior cruciate ligament in City’s Community Shield win over Liverpool in August, just days before the start of the Premier League season.

But his injury has not appeared to cool Bayern’s interest.

Sky Sports claim City are considering a move for Coman if Sane moves to the Bundesliga champions.

Coman has been a mainstay in the Bavarians’ team this season, but has just two goals and assists each to his name so far.

During his time as Bayern manager, Pep Guardiola signed Coman on a two-year loan from Juventus in 2015, before his move was made permanent two years later.

Sane was left out of big games by Guardiola last season, and often found himself behind Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez in the pecking order.

A move back to Germany could appeal to Sane, who joined City in a £37million deal from Schalke in 2017.
