When it comes to the transfer market, Real Madrid are simply one of the best in the business.
The Germany international joined Manchester City from Schalke 04 for a fee in the region of 50 million euros in August 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.
Since his arrival from Schalke 04, Sane has scored 22 goals and provided 24 assists in 82 games for Manchester City, including 13 goals and 16 assists in 40 games in all competitions this season.
The 22-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Germany.
His tricky dribbling, fantastic shot and pace make him a nightmare for any defender to defend.
The Germany international has been in outstanding form this season.
Leroy Sane has represented Germany at Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 21 caps and scoring nine goals, before making his senior international debut in November 2015. As a member of Germany national football team, Sane won 11 caps.
Zinedine Zidane wants to sign a new winger and Sane is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
According to The Sun (via Manchester Evening News), “Real Madrid are reportedly ready to launch a £70million bid for Manchester City star Leroy Sane. The Manchester Evening News claim Zinedine Zidane has the German winger in his sights as he looks to make big changes this summer.”

Manchester City would be wise to keep the Germany international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.
Signing the 22-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Zinedine Zidane.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Real Madrid.
How strong that interest is and whether Real Madrid will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
