Bayern Munich chief Rummenigge: We've been waiting to make Sane move

Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says the club will resume their pursuit of Leroy Sane once the Manchester City winger returns from holiday this week.

Rummenigge remains confident Bayern can lure the German international back to the Bundesliga.

Asked specifically about top target Sane, Rummenigge told a news conference: "The status is that he comes back from vacation this week and did not want to talk during the vacation time.

"Now you will have to wait in peace and quiet to see if something moves in this direction.

"It is well known that we are still looking for a wide player. We lost Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, two players who have shaped the face of Bayern."
