The Bundesliga leaders are expected to sign Man City wideman Sane in the next transfer window.

Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness believes Manchester City winger Leroy Sane will be a good addition to Hans-Dieter Flick‘s side.

Sane, 24, has been constantly linked with a move away from the Etihad, with the Bundesliga giants keen on securing his services as they look to build "a new era" at the Allianz Arena.

German winger Sane was a key player for Guardiola's side last season, making late runs in behind the opposition right-back from the edge of the penalty area that led to vital goals for the Citizens.

The former Schalke player looked set for a move to Bayern last summer before suffering a knee ligament injury in the Community Shield against Liverpool in August.

"I believe that we are on the threshold of a relatively great generation," he told BR.

"When I think that we managed to extend with Manuel Neuer, and we have Joshua Kimmich, Niklas Sule, Robert Lewandowski and hopefully David Alaba and Thiago Alcantara [also agreeing contracts], and I also hope with Leroy Sane, with [Kingsley] Coman, [Serge] Gnabry, a young, developable team.

"I can imagine, if everything goes well, that a new era is just beginning at Bayern Munich."

Bayern want to pay around £52m to £60m (€60m-€70m), according to Sky Sports, with Sane's contract set to expire next June.
