Blues given Leroy Sane boostGuardiola believes German international is "close" to return

Manchester City have been given an injury boost after manager Pep Guardiola revealed that Leroy Sane is close to a return to training.

The German international suffered knee ligament damager in the Community Shield victory over Liverpool, and has missed the last five months as a result.

Sane had been linked with a move to Bayern Munich during the summer, but his return will give the Blues a boost as they continue to fight on four fronts.

Guardiola said: 'I think he is close. I spoke with him two days ago and he said to me he is training alone with the ball, he is doing incredibly well.

'His knee looks really good so I don't think it is going to take too much time to come back to train with us. I think in the next few weeks he can come back.'
