Lewandowski: Signing Sane will immediately improve Bayern Munich

While Leroy Sane is now a domestic treble victor with Manchester City, the year after lifting a record-breaking Premier League title victory as a key player, his role has been reduced significantly this season.

As he continues to duck new contract talks, Sane is emerging as a top summer target for Bayern.

Bayern have lost both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery this summer, and are looking to bolster their options out wide.

And Poland striker Lewandowski admits he's excited by the prospect. The Bavarian giants have failed to qualify for a Champions League final since their triumph in 2013, and are looking to reverse their fortunes.

"The transfer window hasn't even opened yet and we already have two players, I know there's still more to come", the forward said.

This is a super player with great qualities and great potential.

"I've already seen many times how good he is".

Of the four players who had been on the club's radar, one has since fallen off.

Beyond simply praising Sane (which you have to admit would be a bit odd if Bayern's interest wasn't genuine), Robert Lewandowski explained why the 22-year-old would be a ideal addition to the Bavarian squad.

"If one comes, he has to help directly to make us better with his quality". You don't have any time here to develop someone for two years. "You have to bring the quality of the team up from the first game".

If Bayern were to sign him, he would be the first attacking player to arrive in what Hoeness has called "the biggest investment programme in our club's history". But he's exactly right.

Bayern have already landed the French defensive duo of Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez ahead of next season, and Lewandowski isn't expecting that pair to be Bayern's last signings of the summer.
