Man City to offer £40m for Leroy Sane
Manchester City plan to make Schalke starlet Leroy Sane the most expensive German footballer in history, according to Bild.
The Citizens have set their sights on the 19-year-old winger, and they appear to be readying an official proposal for his services.
Bild has learned that the Premier League giants plan to offer £40 million for the highly rated youngster, which would be the highest fee anyone ever paid for a German player if it goes through.
And while Schalke boss Horst Heldt was adamant that Sane would not be sold midway through the season, there is every chance the Miners would be forced to consider said proposal.
Leroy Sane exploded onto the biggest stage last season and he continued with impressive showings in the new campaign.
The talented footballer, who has yet to decide whether to represent Germany or France on international level, has managed 4 goals and as many assists in 17 league outings this term.
Lazio close on Milan Bisevac
French media outlet L’Equipe is reporting that Lazio are on the verge of signing Serbian defender Milan Bisevac from Lyon.
The Biancocelesti have long ago started the search for a new centre-back and it appears they have finally found their man.
L’Equipe understands that Lazio have already reached an agreement with Lyon that will see Bisevac join the club in the coming days.
The Serbia international has a deal until the end of the season at Stade Gerland, and les Gones had no option but to cash in on his services.
Milan Bisevac, 32, has had to battle a succession of injuries over the last couple of years, which is why he only made 19 league appearances in a year and a half.
He had joined Lyon from league rivals PSG in July 2012 and went on to amass 76 league outings for les Gones.
