Will Sane return to Germany this summer?
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted that Leroy Sane can leave the club if he wants to, amid rumours of a move to Bayern Munich.
The German winger scored 10 and assisted 11 in 31 Premier League appearances last season.
Sane also scored four and assisted four in the Champions League.
However, Sane is still not exactly a guaranteed name on the Manchester City team sheet.
With options such as Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and more at the club, that’s not really surprising.
Despite that, Sane possesses immense potential and, as a result, Bayern are reportedly looking to tempt him back to the Bundesliga.
Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently admitted that the German giants will attempt to sign Sane.
Now, Pep Guardiola has claimed that if Sane wants to leave, he’s welcome to.
‘If they don’t want, they go’
Speaking after Manchester City’s 4-1 win against West Ham in the Premier League Asia Trophy, Guardiola explained that he only wants players who are happy, and that those who aren’t are free to go.
‘The club made him an offer last year,’ Guardiola explained, as quoted by the Mail.
‘We want people happy to be here. We are going to help him to the best we know how, (to realise) his potential.
‘The desire to have him to be with us is always there. I spoke to the club 10 times (to say) that I want people here to be happy, if they don’t want, they go.’
The ball now looks to be firmly in Sane’s court.
