Why Leroy Sane Should Stay at City

Leroy Sane has been subject of controversy in the news lately with news emerging he is close to joining Bayern Munchen.

Sane joine city from Schalke in a deal worth 37 million pounds on August 2 2016. Since then he has been an integral part of Pep Guardiola's team. Sane can play on either of the flanks, sometimes he plays behind the stirker.

Sane made his debut in a 2-1 win against thier city rivals Manchester United at old trafford. Since then, Leroy Sane has scored 25 times and assisted 28 times. His time at city has been a huge success as he has won 2 Premier league titles, 2 league cups, 1 F.A cup and 2 Community Shield titles.

There are strong reports linking him to Bayern but i think staying at city will be the best option for him. He has made a strong start at city which has made him become a fan's favourite, although the signing of Riyad Mahrez has affected him in a way as he is not guaranteed starting shirt like bfore. I beleive competion with a player like Riyad Mahrez and bernardo Silva will help him positively as it will ginger him to work hard in training. Also long term servant of the club David Siva will leave at the end of the campaign, his departure will certainly leave a void to be fielded in the midfield position which i expect Pep Guardiola to deploy bernardo Silva there more frequenty, this will also create opportunity for sane. Also stablility of coaches is important to the develoent and success of a club, moreso a coach of Guardiola's quality, i beleieve Sane can continue to learn under Guardiola who is arguably the best coach in world football. 

Bayern is a big team and i expect Sane to want to jump at the opportunity, also Germany being his country is also another factor but i believe he will grow better at city. One can also not wish away the ban on city which will ensure they wont play champions league football for two seasons and a player of Leroy Sane's quality and stature will want to play champions leage football every season.
