Leroy Sane transfer to Bayern is on the cards, but former Les Bleus star says he doesn't fit the bill.

Willy Sagnol has urged Bayern Munich not to sign Leroy Sane from Manchester City.

The former France defender believes German winger Sane “doesn’t match up at all to Bayern” as he’s a very “inconsistent player”.

The 24-year-old continues to be linked with a move to the Allianz Arena, with his current deal at the Etihad set to expire next year. 

However, Bayern legend Sagnol says his old club should consider signing Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz instead of the Man City ace.

"He doesn't match up at all to Bayern, in terms of character. He's an inconsistent player, who is very withdrawn," Sagnol told French radio station RMC.

"For me, he isn't made for this club.

"He's got lots of problems, at Manchester City and with the national team. We've said that he'd cost €80million. At a pinch, I'd prefer to put down €20m more and buy Havertz to be happy.

"With Havertz, it's the guarantee of a playmaker that you could play with Lewandowski without a problem. [Thomas] Muller won't last forever."
