Bayern München CEO Karl Heinz Rummenigge and president Uli Hoeness have admitted that it will be difficult to sign Leroy Sané from Manchester City.

The Bavarians have confirmed they are looking into the possibility of bringing the German international to Allianz Arena, but they are aware that it won't be easy.

"I can't answer that seriously today. But you shouldn't forget that he has a two-year contract, and Manchester City are not a club that sell players because they must. It will be difficult," Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Kicker on Sunday when asked about Bayern's interest in Sané.

"The player must be convinced that Bayern München are club where he can have fun playing football in a good mood," he added.

Meanwhile, Uli Hoeness told Sky:

"We are interested. But the chance of getting him is rather small."

Nevertheless, former German international Lothar Matthäus isn't doubting that the transfer will happen.

"I'm sure he will move to Munich. if Uli Hoeness publicly reveals that they are dealing with the player, it almost always means that he will end up at Bayern. And it would be a fantastic transfer as Sané is one of the best wingers out there," Matthäus wrote in a column for Sky.

Manchester City paid €50.5 million to sign Leroy Sané from Schalke 04 in 2016. His contract runs until 2021.
