Leroy Sane has officially told Manchester City he wants to leave the club this summer.

Sane will depart for Bayern Munich in the coming months if the two clubs can agree a fee – but City have maintained they will not be bullied into releasing the player on the cheap.

The Premier League champions will allow the 24-year-old to run down his contract until next June if Bayern do not lodge an offer deemed acceptable. Sane has made it clear to Bayern that he is ready to move to Bavaria immediately.

‘Leroy has said he doesn’t want to extend the contract,’ Pep Guardiola said. ‘He wants to leave. That will either happen this summer or when he is out of contract.

‘The club spoke to Leroy two or three times to extend his contract. He rejected. He wants to play at another club.

If at the end of the season both clubs arrive at an agreement then he’ll leave, if not then he’ll stay one more year and then leave at the end of his contract.’

Sane was an unused substitute during Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Arsenal and is yet to make his long-awaited comeback from an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Guardiola acknowledged that City were powerless to stop the German departing but maintained he only wants fully-committed players. The ideal resolution for all sides would be a swift exit.

‘I’m so disappointed,’ Guardiola added. ‘When we make an offer to a player, it is because we want him. We tried before the injury, we tried after. He has other wishes and I understand.

‘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.’
