    I like this trend of creating player threads for highly-discussed players.

    Indeed. Our boy Leroy has been one of my favorite players to follow this past season.

    Leroy Sane has sweet smell of success after nose job

    Leroy Sane has explained how a nose problem meant he sometimes struggled to breathe during games for Manchester City last season.

    Sane missed out on winning the Confederations Cup with Germany earlier this month as he chose to undergo an operation to correct the issue.

    The 21-year-old scored nine goals during an impressive debut campaign for City but has now revealed the extent of the discomfort his nose problem caused.

    "I missed the Confederations Cup because I had to have surgery on my nose," Sane told ESPN FC.

    "I couldn't really breathe through it. I was working out when I could do it (surgery) and I spoke with the national coach and also Pep Guardiola. It was a problem. Sometimes I would feel it during the games, it was really hard to breathe for me, but now it's fine."

    City have already spent close to £150million this summer on Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy and the club are likely to pass the £200million-mark before the transfer window closes.

    Guardiola's spending spree will increase expectations on his side in the Premier League and particularly the Champions League, where they have reached the semi-finals only once in five consecutive attempts.

    Sane says the target is to haul in Real Madrid, who have won the tournament twice in a row and in three of the last four seasons.

    "They are two-time Champions League winners, so I think it is going to be difficult, but we can do it if we improve a lot and work on our problems," Sane said.

    "I don't think we are one of the favourites, but we can go through to the semi-finals. We have a team that can do it, experienced young players who play very well. If we work a lot and improve, we can do it."

    "Pep (Guardiola) has won many trophies and he gives us a lot of belief. It is a big year. I want to win some trophies."

    It makes much more sense to me given that context why he pulled out of the Confederations Cup and why Löw wasn't at all upset by it.

    will he be a starter again or is he still a benchwarmer this season? In 4 games he only started like 1 game with the 3 other games, used as a sub.

    It really depends on the formation.

    Pep plays 3-5-2 formation in Man City, and the only time Sane started..........Pep used him as a left wing back

    If Pep continues a 3-5-2 formation (which is likey), Sane doesnt fit into this system........because he doesnt have a position.

    He can play a bit of a striker next to Aguero or Gabriel Jesus, and thats how Pep used him VS Liverpool when he came off the bench.

    If Aguero/Jesus gets injured, i think Pep wont insist a 3-5-2 formation because he only have 2 strikers in the entire roster. He might use a 3-4-3 with Sane back at the left wing position

    On Bluemoon at least his performance isn't discussed much and if so most users see them as somewhat lucky hit - probably even more luck than skill. It's the old story of German players. Just think about Suarez or Aguero would've scored these goals.. xD whatever..

    I don't think Sané has good chances to achieve a starter role in the next weeks if not an injury "goes his way". He just has to impress as a joker and stay focussed for now.

    I don't see Man City willing to sell him for any less than 70-80 Mio.
