Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola is keen to keep Leroy Sane but it seems the Germany international is no longer guaranteed starting spot but as the desire always come with a caveat when he is asked about the Sane’s future.
“He is a guy we appreciate, I like him a lot. I think he can be better,” Guardiola told reporters. “Two times, three times I have said that 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.”
Just two weeks earlier, Guardiola admitted that he only wanted happy players at City but that it could be difficult to keep his entire squad in good spirits when they’re not playing every week or starting every game.
“The club make him an offer last year, as I said many times,” he said. “We want people here to be happy. We are going to help him to be the best, we know his potential and what his level is. He has a special quality difficult to find around the world.
“He knows, they all know, it’s difficult because of the quality we have. But, at the same time, I spoke to the club 10 times I want people here to be happy. If they are not, they go. The desire to have him to be with us is always there”,he added.
