Suggestions that reported Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City target Leroy Sane could cost €55million have been described as “bizarre”.
Sane has scored four and set up another four goals in 17 Bundesliga appearances for Schalke this season, leading to speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League – and Barcelona and Real Madrid.
However, when asked about the possibility of a club paying €55million for the 20-year-old as has been suggested, Borussia Monchengladbach’s general manager Max Eberl told Sport Bild: “After half a year in the Bundesliga! Of course Sane is a top talent. But €55m? That’s bizarre.”

Schalke coach Andre Breitenreiter, meanwhile, has told Sane he would be best served staying at the Veltins Arena for now.
“The public comments made by CEO Clemens Tonnies, sporting director Horst Heldt and Leroy’s management are all crystal clear,” he told Sport Bild.
