Bayern to complete double swoop for Sane and Pepe

Report: Bayern Munich to complete double swoop for Leroy Sane and Nicolas Pepe

July 12, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Bundesliga champions could sensationally complete deals for two of European football's finest young wingers.

Bayern Munich is reportedly ready to complete the double signing of Manchester City's Leroy Sane and Lille sensation Nicolas Pepe. The pair is expected to cost the Bundesliga club €165 million. 

Following the departure of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, the Bavarians are desperate to recruit fresh legs capable of filling in the vacancies on their flanks. The pair collectively registered 242 goals and 260 assists in 609 appearances and were instrumental in the German outfit winning the Champions League in 2013.

Bayern's pursuit of Sane to fill in one of the voids left has been an open secret in recent months. However, despite claims that the 23-year-old forward is keen on swapping Manchester City for the Bundesliga champions, the Citizens are reluctant to sell. 

Recently, Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge reiterated the possibility of his side rekindling the interest in Leroy Sane with claims of the club exploring the signing of Ousmane Dembele having been labeled as false. According to Tutto Mercato's Tancredi Palmeri, the winger would possibly cost the Germans €90 million. 

While at it, Bayern Munich is expected to intensify its pursuit for Lille's Nicolas Pepe ahead of a potential €75 million transfer. The 24-year-old forward impressed in the French Ligue 1 last season, scoring 22 goals and assisting 11 in his 38 games. He recently featured for Ivory Coast at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations but failed to replicate his club form at the tournament.

With his team getting eliminated in the quarter-final, Pepe is expected to sort out his future in the coming weeks and a move to Bayern Munich could be on the cards.
