Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly eyeing a big money move for Real Sociedad star Mikel Oyarzabal in the event that Leroy Sane leaves the club this summer.
The interest of the English champions in Spanish attacker Oyarzabal was revealed by Spanish newspaper AS.
It was revealed that Mikel Oyarzabal has a €75m release clause in his contract at Real Sociedad at the moment.
Manchester City see Mikel Oyarzabal as a potential replacement for Arsenal target Sane.
German international Sane has serious doubts over his future at Manchester City having been linked with fellow Premier League outfit Arsenal and German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Sane was linked with Arsenal at the start of this summer’s transfer window but the former Schalke 04 star has been seriously linked with a return to Germany with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
The 24-year-old joined Manchester City from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 in 2016.
Bayern Munich officials have publicly talked about their pursuit of Leroy Sane with club manager Niko Kovac revealing at the weekend that the Bavarian giants are confident of sealing a deal for the winger this summer.

He has won two league titles at Manchester City.
