Guardiola claims he has no control over Sane’s future
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated that he has no say in the future of Bayern Munich-linked Leroy Sane. The German has been linked with a move to the Bavarians amid the player recuperating from a knee injury.
Speaking about the prospect of the player leaving the club in the future, he stated that every player has his ambitions and desires that keep changing, which is why he doesn’t know what the winger wants to do with his future.
"I'm not the same guy I was when I arrived here, so for the players the same, they have dreams and after the dreams are accomplished they need another thing so I don't know.
"Now what I want is for him to come back. I said last week his knee looks really good and after that it's not my business. In terms of what the club, the player, his agent want to do with his own future, it's not in my hands."
