Leroy Sane will leave Manchester City this summer if a deal can be agreed with another club after he rejected a new contract, says manager Pep Guardiola.
City have given up hope of negotiating a new contract with Sane after nearly two years of talks with the Germany international.
Guardiola is resigned to losing Sane, who has turned down multiple renewal offers, but has not ruled out the 24-year-old staying at the club until his contract expires.
“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,” said Guardiola ahead of Monday’s visit of Burnley.
“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.
“If, at the end of this season, we arrive at an agreement with another club, he is going to leave. ”
“If not he will stay one more year and leave when out of contract.”
Guardiola also said David Silva and Claudio Bravo, whose deals were due to expire at the end of June, will remain at the the club until the end of the season.
