Real Madrid have been extensively scouting Schalke 04 wonderkid Leroy Sané and could be preparing a bid to sign the 19-year-old forward, British newspaper The Guardian has claimed.
The Germany international has made a big impression this season at the Bundesliga. He has become a crucial player for Schalke 04, proving he has a great future ahead.
Sané has played 19 games for the Gelsenkirchen side this season, scoring five goals. He has caught the attention of many European giants, including Manchester City and Liverpool.
Los Blancos know his quality well, as he played at the Santiago Bernabeu in last season’s Champions League, scoring a brilliant goal in Schalke’s 3-4 victory against Real. Los Merengues made it into the next round thanks to their previous victory in the first leg, but they never forgot about Sané.
Real Madrid and Schalke have a excellent relationship, and that could facilitate the arrival of Sané at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Germans plan to obtain more than 50 million euros for the youngster, but The Guardian has reported they could let him go for just 35 million.
Sané is a very versatile player who can play as a playmaker, a winger or a striker. He is the son of former Senegalese footballer Souleyman Sané and former German rhythmic gymnast champion Regina Weber.
