Leroy Sane’s proposed Manchester City contract extension has been held up by his mother, as per reports.
City have been trying to sign Sane to a new deal since last summer but have so far been frustrated in their attempts to close negotiations.
The Premier League champions still believe the Germany winger will eventually commit his future to the club beyond 2021, when his current deal expires.
But as it stands they have been unable to make serious headway because the 23-year-old’s mother, Regina Weber, has proven to be ‘difficult’ during the course of recent talks, sources close to the situation have revealed.
Weber won a bronze medal for Germany at the 1984 Olympics for individual rhythmic gymnastics and has been involved in negotiations alongside Sane’s father, Souleyman Sane, a former footballer who represented Senegal at international level.
