Bayern Munich say reports claiming the club have made a bid for Manchester City winger Leroy Sane are untrue.

Media reports in Britain and Germany have suggested that the Bundesliga giants had tabled a bid for the 23-year-old.

But Bayern Munich tweeted a statement, saying: "News reports made today stating that Leroy Sane has decided to join FC Bayern do not correspond to the facts."

Sky Sports News understands that Manchester City have no intention of selling Sane to the Bundesliga club.

According to Sky in Germany however, positive talks have already been made in Munich between Sane's representatives and Bayern.

Earlier this week, Bayern's chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge apologised to Manchester City and hit out at the club's manager Niko Kovac for saying the club are "confident" about signing Sane.

Sane, who scored 16 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League champions last season, has two years remaining on his current deal at the Etihad Stadium.

The 23-year-old is yet to make a decision and there has still been no indication from his camp that he prefers Bayern over City.

Meanwhile, his manager Pep Guardiola has admitted that Sane's future at City is "not in our hands".

He has been involved in all of his side's pre-season friendlies prior to their Community Shield clash with Liverpool on August 4.
