Pep Guardiola has openly admitted Leroy Sane will not be signing a new contract at Manchester City, revealing the winger has turned down ‘two or three’ proposals from the club to extend his stay.
The Catalan boss was speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Citizens’ game against Burnley on Monday, and one of the main topics of discussion was the future of the Germany international.
With Guardiola now confirming that the club’s efforts to keep hold of Sane have fallen flat, he said a move away will happen if an agreement can be found with a buying club.
“Leroy has rejected to extend his contract,” he said. “Everyone knows. If at the end of the season two clubs agree he can leave, if not he will leave at the end of his contract. The club offered two or three times and he rejected it.”
Sane is yet to play a single minute in the Premier League this season after suffering a serious knee injury in the Community Shield, which came at a time when Bayern Munich were chasing his signature.
As far back as July it was revealed by 90min that Sane was open to moving to the Bundesliga side, with the following updates being that the forward was growing ‘anxious’ over the move, as he wished to tie up the details as soon as possible.
