Bayern Munich will reignite their interest in £90m-rated Manchester City forward Leroy Sane ahead of next summer's transfer window.
The Bundesliga champions met with representatives from City over the summer in order to negotiate the possibility of doing a deal for the winger, who is valued at £90m.
However, Sane's knee injury in August, which is set to keep him sidelined until 2020, meant that Bayern's interest was withdrawn.
Speaking to The Mirror, Bayern board member Edmund Stoiber said: "There were discussions over Sane. The unfortunate injury and the surgery he required for it broke the deal up.
"We'll see how things develop. As chairman of the advisory board and a member of the supervisory board, I have great faith in the sporting leadership. If they propose a transfer of this magnitude, that is justified."
The Bundesliga side are open to offering Sane a contract which would see the 23-year-old earn £20m a year.
Meanwhile, City are said to be working on agreeing fresh terms with Sane, whose current contract expires at the end of next season.
