Leroy Sane Bayern continues to make the headlines Heynckes doesn't think he is amongst the best.
Sane is not yet a top player and the €100m price tag is totally unjustified, according to former Bayern boss.

Jupp Heynckes does not think Manchester City attacker Leroy Sane is a "top player" and says the reported Bayern Munich target is not worth €100million. The 24-year-old was heavily linked with the Bundesliga champions last summer, just before he suffered a serious knee injury in August. According to various reports, the German giants are still interested in bringing Sane to the Allianz Arena.
But, former Der FCB boss Heynckes says the City winger is not yet among the best players in the world. "He was in good shape before he injured himself so badly. For me, he has not yet made a breakthrough as an absolute top player," he told Welt am Sonntag. "I think this is a player who is currently at a crossroads. Will he continue to work hard on himself, or will he continue to be just an extraordinary talent?"
On rumours suggesting Bayern could pay at least €100m for the Germany international Sane, Heynckes said: "He has to be ready to take the next big step because there is no use in flashing the talent every now and then. "I can honestly tell you that I don't think the price is justified." Heynckes won the Champions League and four Bundesliga titles as Bayern head coach
