Guardiola: Sane future out of my hands

PEP Guardiola insists he would like Leroy Sane to remain at Manchester City, but admits that it is up to the player.

The Germany international has been publicly targeted by Bayern Munich, who have described him as their “dream signing” this summer.

The 23-year-old made 46 appearances in all competitions for City during the 2018/19 season, scoring 16 goals, but he started just 21 of their 38 Premier League games.

Sane played and scored twice in City’s 6-1 friendly win over Hong Kong side Kitchee on Wednesday.

Following the friendly, Guardiola said the onus is on Sane to commit his future to the club, with two years remaining on his current contract.

“He did a good game, especially in the second half. He is a guy who we appreciate, I like him a lot,” said the Catalan.

“I think he can be better. Two times, three times I said: we want him to stay.

“That’s why he has an offer to extend his contract. It’s not in our hands.”

“The agreement is good and if he wants to leave, I’ll be sad. Hopefully, he stays.” – Eurosport
