To make transfer matters more interesting, Real Madrid's arch-rivals Barcelona are also keen admirers of Man City star Leroy Sane.

Leroy Sane seems to be the perfect choice for Barcelona if the Catalonians plan to hijack a move for the 24-year-old as his pace and direct play would offer a different outlet on the flanks.
