The recent Leroy Sané dilemma at Manchester City keeps sparkling more fire as head coach Pep Guardiola said he won’t be in the market for a replacement for winger Leroy Sané who looks set to join Bayern Munich. “We have enough good players in the squad. Gabriel Jesus can play on the left, Phil Foden can also play and we have Raheem Sterling there. We have great players in the squad. Maybe we have other priorities,” Pep said.
Manchester City boss Guardiola’s interview
In a recent interview, as confirmed by BBC, Sky Sports and Man City website itself, “He wants to join another club“, said Guardiola. The former Barca boss also included he has no idea if the German youngster will leave this summer or next summer when his contract expires. Guardiola said City had spoken to Sané “two or three times” about a new deal, but the player refused. In the interview, Pep talked about the situation.
When we make an offer to a player it’s because we want him. He has a 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 adventurePep Guardiola on Leroy Sané
Bayern Munich’s reaction to the situation
Bayern Munich have reportedly offered £36m (€40M) for Leroy Sané. Sané is destined to sign for Bayern and City must decide whether to cash in now or let him go for free next year, as reported by BILD’s Christian Falk.
Manchester Evening News and AS Diario reports that Bayern Munich head coach Hansi Flick was asked about Leroy Sané. After two years of publicly commenting on Leroy Sané’s future, Bayern Munich remained tight-lipped on the winger’s contract situation at Manchester City following the news he won’t sign a new deal at the Etihad.
Bayern have made it no secret of their desire to sign Sané, with key figures from the club’s hierarchy and playing staff taking it in turns to comment on their interest in the German international. With the current Leroy Sané dilemma at Manchester City going on, Bayern are surely the side who are profiting from it the most. But now, manager Hansi Flick and club director Oliver Kahn have chosen to deflect questions about Sane’s future when asked how Guardiola’s announcement affects their chances of signing the City player.
