Manchester City want to hang on to Leroy Sane and are preparing to hold talks with the German’s representatives over a new deal, Press Association Sport understands.
Sane is contracted to the domestic treble winners for the next two seasons, but Bayern Munich are eager to lure the 23-year-old back to Germany.
The Bundesliga champions will attempt to plug the sizeable gaps that will be created when wide men Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery depart the club over the summer, and chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed their interest in Sane.
Davies has been appointed head coach at the Belgian side on a three-year deal and will work alongside Kompany, their new player-manager.
Davies, who has been part of the City coaching staff for nine years, said on the Anderlecht website: “When Vinny asked me to make the move with him to RSC Anderlecht, I didn’t doubt.
“We are starting a beautiful project – taking RSC Anderlecht back to the place where they belong, with special emphasis on the development of talented young players.”
Anderlecht sporting director Michael Verschueren added: “We hired him on Vincent Kompany’s advice. They have been working together for quite a while and we want to bring Manchester City’s success story to RSC Anderlecht.”
