Kovac: Leroy Sané can definitely help us
Leroy Sané would definitely be a helpful addition to the Bayern team, says Niko Kovac.
Bayern München coach Niko Kovac is in no doubt that Leroy Sané would be able to help the Bavarians if he ends up making the move to Allianz Arena from Manchester City.

"Yes. Period. Exclamation mark. He can definitely help us. He has showed that in the national team and at City," Kovac told reporters at a press conference today.
Competing with clubs from Spain and England for the signatures of the world's best players isn't easy, though, says the Bayern coach.
"It's no longer club against club. We have to fight against states, against billionaires. There is more money available for a club like FC Bayern. But it has become much more difficult for Bundesliga clubs. Dortmund have brought in players from the Bundesliga, not from outside. The best players play in Spain and England," Kovac explained.
On Monday, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said that Sané is currently considering his future.
"He's coming back from his vacation this week. He didn't want to have any discussions during his vacation, because he wanted to think it through on his own. Now, we have to wait and see if there's any movement towards Bayern," Rummenigge said.
Bayern have brought in Jann-Fiete Arp, Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez this summer.
