Leroy Sane has struggled for consistency this year for both Manchester City and Germany – which cost him a place at the World Cup.
The winger has been linked with Juventus, though the Blues are in no hurry to sell the former Schalke starlet.
The Old Lady enquired about Sane, only to be told there was only one way they could get their hands on the 22-year-old.
That is if Juve send Paulo Dybala to the Etihad in return, claim calciomercato. But that appears to be a non-starter, for now.
That’s because the longer it continues with Dybala struggling to fit into the same side as Cristiano Ronaldo, the more Juve may consider parting company with the Argentinian.
