The news broke on Wednesday during Bayern Munich's midweek routine training session. According to Bild, Germany international and Bayern forward Leroy Sane suffered an ankle injury and was forced out of the training ground.

Sane's injury is expected to rule him out of Saturday's Bundesliga clash between Bayern and Stuttgart, while his presence in the return leg of the Champions League matchup against PSG is also in doubt.

The game between PSG and Bayern will take place next week at the Allianz Arena and is scheduled for Wednesday, which means Sane is facing a one-week uphill battle to get ready and fit enough to be eligible for the match.

Bild reported that Sane suffered an "injury to the capsular ligament of his ankle." Depending on the severity of the injury, this has taken athletes "several weeks up to a month" to recover from.

Leroy Sane got injured coinciding with Sadio Mane's return to Bayern

Sane might be having a rather paltry season this year at Munich, but you never have enough warm bodies--ask Christophe Galtier. On the bright side of news for Bayern Munich, though, Sadio Mane has already returned to the Bavarian side and should start against PSG next Wednesday.

Kingsley Coman (the goalscorer in the first-leg affair against PSG) and Jamal Musiala have been the men of choice of Julian Nagelsmann through the largest part of the season on the Bayern wings. Serge Gnabry and Sadio Mane are now in contention to make the starting XI of FCB going forward, too.

Bayern is Bayern for a reason, and their depth is ashtonising and ever-increasing whether or not they have to navigate injuries and perhaps miss Sane next midweek.

PSG, on the other hand, will be praying for Neymar to make a return in time and for the rest of the team to not suffer any further injury (cue Presnel Kimpembe, done for the year) that could hamper them ahead of the most important match of the season.
