Sane has yet to play for City this season after sustaining a serious knee injury in the Community Shield victory over Liverpool before the current began.
The Germany international has now recovered and made an appearance for the City U23s against Arsenal U23s but he won’t be able to play anytime soon due to the coronavirus outbreak.
All Premier League games are suspended until April 3 at the earliest.
The Sun recently reported that Bayern Munich are still interested in ane despite the fact he spent most the season out on the sidelines.
The report did, however, claim that the Bundesliga giants want Sane to ‘prove his match fitness’ after spending most the season on the sidelines.
However, with football suspended he will not get a chance to do so which could scupper a potential move.
