Leroy Sane is drawing interest among some of Europe’s top football clubs. A value of £42 million has already been estimated for the talented young star. Rumour has it that Liverpool have also opened a £28 million negotiation with Sane’s agent. The 2016 sports report in Germany stated that the 20-year-old is among the most coveted players in the nation. He is likely to leave Schalke in the coming months.
Schalke’s Win Over Real Madrid
Probably, most people outside Gelsenkirchen before March 2015 had not heard about Sane. Nevertheless, the young star skyrocketed to fame after Schalke’s 4-3 win over Real Madrid. The match was held on 10 March 2015 in Santiago Bernabeu. Sane scored a spectacular goal after offering an assist as a second-half substitute in the Champions League. Since then, Sane has been making headlines in the sporting arena all over Europe.
Sane’s Football History
He is a German professional player for the renowned Schalke 04 and the Germany national football team. Sane was born on 11 January 1996 in Essen, Germany. He currently plays the position of an attacking midfielder for his team. Sane began his football career in 2001, playing for the SG Wattenscheid 09 youth-team. His father had also played for this team in the past. Sane joined Schalke 04 in 2008 until 2011 when he joined Bayer Leverkusen. He returned to Schalke 04 Youth Academy in 2011 and took an active role in the team as a professional player. He gained a lot of credibility over the past months and it is not rare to see him suggested as the first goalscorer on bookmakers’ sites such as Ladbrokes. With odds of 7.00 for the Friday game against Shaktar Donetsk, backing him might seem like a long shot, but remember that you can always secure your bet with a promo code.
Excellent Sporting Lineage
It is not a surprise that the young star shot to success in his football career considering his lineage. His father, Souleyman was a top scorer for SG Wattenscheid 09 and 1. FC Nurnberg in the Bundesliga matches. In his career, he scored a total of 116 goals after 326 attendances in Germany’s top two divisions. His mother, Weber-Sane also won a bronze medal in the 1984 Olympics that were held in Los Angeles. She was a key contender in the rhythmic gymnastics games.
Good Move for Liverpool
Getting Sane would be a good move for the club. The young star has a promising talent and would yield excellent results for Liverpool. Sane has extraordinary dribbling skills and speed. The combination of these two factors is excellent for an attacking midfielder.
