Former Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has insisted his full focus remains on Bayern Munich amid reports linking him with a return to the Etihad Stadium.
The right-sided winger left the Blues for Bavaria in 2020 and has enjoyed success in Germany. This season has been particularly fruitful for Sane and has seen him bag nine goals and seven assists in just 18 appearances.
Such form is believed to have been noticed by City, who are thought to be open to a return for the 27-year-old. Liverpool are also thought to be keen on a switch for the German as they eye a long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah.

While on international duty with Germany, where he has linked up with former Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann, Sane has insisted he is not looking to move. He told reporters: "I haven’t given it any thought.
"The club wants to have discussions but at the moment I want to concentrate on the season. Bayern will be my first point of contact, everything else will take care of itself.
"I am taking on more and more responsibility, on and off the pitch. I really like the role and position at the moment.
"Julian knows me very well and I want to repay that with good performances. I had good preparation and played into a flow. At the moment I'm really enjoying myself at the club and in the national team."
Speculation about Sane has grown with the forward's contract expiring in 2025. The winger made 135 appearances for the Blues during his stint in Manchester.
