Pep Guardiola confirms Leroy Sané wants Bayern move

Pep Guardiola today confirmed Leroy Sané has told Manchester City that he doesn’t want to extend his contract.

At his latest press conference, Guardiola was asked about Sané, who Bayern Munich hope to sign.

And the former Barcelona coach confirmed that the 24-year-old German wants to leave the Etihad Stadium.

“Leroy said he doesn’t want to extend his contract,” Guardiola said.

“If we find an agreement with a club he will leave this summer, if not he’ll stay another year and will leave at the end of his contract.”

City and Bayern have yet to agree a fee for Sané, with recent reports stating there is a €30m difference between the clubs.

Guardiola stressed that City have done everything they can to try and keep Sané, who arrived from Schalke in 2016.

Pep added: “The club offered [a new contract] two or three times and he rejected it.

“When we make an offer to a player it’s because we want him. He has special quality. We want players who want to play with the club to achieve targets.

“He is a nice guy and I love him so much. I have nothing against – but he wants another adventure.”

In four seasons at City, Sané has made 134 appearances and scored 39 goals. He has missed all of this season up until now with a torn ACL.

Bayern tried to sign the speedy winger last year, entering talks with City, but Sané’s injury postponed his exit for a year.
