Some Manchester City fans have reacted to reports the club could consider replacing Leroy Sane with Kingsley Coman.
Sky Sports report the Citizens are eyeing the Frenchman in case Sane departs for Bayern Munich next summer ‘as expected’.
The injured 23-year-old’s current deal runs out in the summer of 2021, and the club appear to have had difficulty tieing him down to a new contract.
Sane has regularly been linked with a move to German champions Bayern, after failing to nail down a regular starting role under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium.
Coman has been with Bayern since 2015, spending two seasons on loan at the Allianz before making a €28 million / £24 million permanent move from Juventus in 2017 (Goal).
The star has won league titles in France, Italy and Germany, and also has several domestic cups to his name.
For Bayern so far, he has scored 28 goals in 139 appearances.
City fans react
Sane is hugely popular with the City fans, and so many were less than keen about the idea of him being replaced by Coman, who has a slightly concerning record with injuries:
We are linked with Coman now. Is this the same guy who almost retired from football because of injuries?
Made of glass. Not even worth £10m.

If Sane is leaving we need to replace with an equally talented player (very hard to do) that player is not Coman

Pep can turn him around but the lad has got glass legs. He’s too much injury prone!
