It appears that Leroy Sane’s soccer future is away from Manchester City. According to Man City’s manager Pep Guardiola, Sane will definitely leave the club after he refused to extend his deal.

Sane has a contract until the summer of 2021, but Guardiola says German winger might change clubs even earlier.

“Leroy said he doesn’t want to extend the contract so it means he wants to leave and it’s going to happen this summer or at the end of the contract,” Guardiola told reporters in a recent video call.

According to Guardiola, Sane was offered an extension multiple times, but rejected the opportunity to commit his future to the Premier League side.

 “The club talked to me and he’s been offered two or three times to extend his contract and he rejected so he wants to play for another club,” he added.

Leroy Sane was linked with a move away from Etihad Stadium for some time now, with Bayern Munich being mentioned as his most likely destination. Reportedly, Bayern even had an offer accepted by City last summer but the move collapsed after Sane tore his ACL during FA Community Shield game.

Sane arrived to Man City in 2016 from Bundesliga side Schalke, and has since made 134 appearances with the club. He contributed with 34 goals, while helping City to win seven trophies including two consecutive Premier League trophies.
