Manchester United Urged To 'Stir Things Up' By Signing Leroy Sane From Manchester City
Manchester United have been urged to sign Leroy Sane in an attempt to 'stir it up' with bitter rivals Manchester City.
The German international is expected to leave City in the summer transfer window after rejecting three new contract offers from the club.
Sane's most likely destination is with Bayern Munich in his native Germany - but United legend Dwight Yorke has suggested the Red Devils try their luck.
United are currently linked with Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho but should a move be too pricey, Sane would be a cheaper option with his deal expiring in 2021.
"United has got a real good attacking bunch of young players," Yorke told Stadium Astro. "Add in Sancho, I like the boy Sane. If I was to airdrop, the boy Sane at City I really do [like].
"We haven't got a left-footed sort of winger. The boy [Mason] Greenwood is coming to the fore recently but I like Sane.
"I really do think this kid is probably the quickest out of all them as well and he's really got a good attitude.
"I know he's got some injuries but if I was brave, if I was Man United manager at this point in time that's the type of person I would go for."
Yorke then went on to add that Sane's clear advantage over Sancho is his Premier League experience, having helped City to two Premier League titles since his arrival in 2016.
"He's had a couple of years in the Premier League, I've watched him very closely, he's a player that I like a lot," Yorke said.
"The boy Sancho is obviously up there as well but if you can't get him why not be brave and go for a player who's played across next door and cause some stir, just stir it up a little bit. That's what I would do."
Pep Guardiola revealed last week that the 24-year-old will depart the Etihad when his contract expires in 2021, if not before.
"Leroy has said he doesn't want to extend the contract. He wants to leave," the Spaniard admitted.
"That will either happen this summer or when he is out of contract.
"The club spoke to Leroy two or three times to extend his contract. He rejected. He wants to play at another club.
"If at the end of the season both clubs arrive at an agreement then he'll leave, if not then he'll stay one more year and then leave at the end of his contract."
