No one has ever doubted the talent of the German international. He rebounded from not being chosen to represent Germany in the World Cup in Russia and became one of City’s form players down the late autumn and winter stretch 2018.

But his appearances in spring 2019 have been sporadic at best and – even worse for the winger – he appears to have genuinely lost the trust of Pep Guardiola for big games – when things really matter.

City was on the way of chasing a quadruple. The important games in all competitions had been coming fast.

But against clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham in the league, sané was a substitute on the bench.

Top News 3: Bayern Munich need to replace Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery

With City chasing the goal in the second leg that would put them through, it was hard to understand why Sane was kept sidelined for such a long time. During his short spell on the pitch he did affect the game but his involvement was too brief to turn the wheel around.

City have been confident of convincing Sane to continue playing for the club. His current deal expires in 2021 but the player might well have legitimate concerns over how much playing time he’ll get under Guardiola. Sterling and Silva are about as old as him and the signing of another attacker, Joao Felix, may come soon. So, Sane may see his future in the German Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich need to replace Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery for next season and Leroy Sané may exactly fit the requirements. The derby against Manchester United is the most significant fixture left in the entire Premier League schedule.

The matter is quite simple: should City win the match they will probably be able to lift the trophy at the end of the season. If not, then Liverpool are favourites. Whether Leroy Sané will be trusted to be part of that job from the beginning of the match remains to be seen.
