• Leroy Sané is determined to move out of Manchester City
  • Pep Guardiola is disappointed with Sané's decision
  • Bayern Munich has yet to raise funds to secure deal for Sané

Manchester City has tried multiple times to try and keep Leroy Sané. Unfortunately, their efforts have gone for naught, with Pep Guardiola revealing that the 24-year-old football player is not interested in an extension or a new deal. Hence, it appears that the German midfielder's decision is made up, although there is no clarity as to when he will be departing Etihad Stadium.

"Leroy said he doesn't want to extend the contract so it means he wants to leave and it is going to happen this summer or when he is out of contract," Guardiola said in a report from Sky Sports.

"The club have talked to me, they've offered two or three times to extend his contract, he rejected so it means he wants to play in another club," he added.

Hence, it all depends now on whether an acceptable deal is on the table for Sané. City made it clear that they will not deal away the midfielder at a bargain. The Sky Blues' asking price for the 24-year-old is $80 million.

Sané has been linked to a move to Bayern Munich. Both Bayern and City had already discussed a potential deal recently but it appears they are far from reaching an agreement. Bayern could only offer $46 million, but City is standing pat on its asking fee of $80 million. Much of this was covered in a previous post.

Sané has yet to play since the resumption of football action. He was not used against Arsenal which the Citizens won, 3-0. He is coming off an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

With the development, Guardiola was dismayed. He is aware that they are powerless to stop Sané from leaving the team. He stressed they are only willing to maintain committed players and is now simply hoping for an amicable parting of ways with the German footballer.

"We want players who want to play with this club, players who commit to try to achieve targets but of course we respect him. I have nothing against him but he decided he wants another adventure for his career. We are going to count on the players who want to stay here," Guardiola said.

In related news, Guardiola also gave an update on the fate of two players -- David Silva and Claudio Bravo. Originally, the deal of the two players was to expire at the end of the month. According to him, Silva and Bravo will stay on until the end of the season.
