Man City's Leroy Sane participates in training, may be ready to face Basel
From ESPN - February 12, 2018

Leroy Sane has sparked speculation he could be close to a surprise comeback by training ahead of Manchester City's Champions League trip to Basel.

The winger was ruled out for six to seven weeks after injuring ligaments in an ankle during the FA Cup win at Cardiff City on Jan. 28.

It now appears the 22-year-old, who has scored 11 goals this season, is ahead of schedule after he trained at the City Football Academy on Monday morning.

It was unclear whether Sane was fit enough to be included in the squad to travel for the first leg of the round-of-16 tie in Switzerland, but the development is nevertheless encouraging for manager Pep Guardiola.

Sane was also photographed participating in training last week but Guardiola said the Germany international's involvement was limited to running only.
