WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER, PEP GUARDIOLA, SAYING: "I'm so disappointed, of course when we make an offer to players it's because we want him.

He's a young player with incredible quality, special quality that is difficult to find all over the world.

"But we tried before the injury, we tried before he went to surgery and after that he rejected, so he has other wishes and I understand.

"I said many times, we want players who want to play with this club, who want to play with us, who want to fully commit to try to achieve our targets.

But of course we respect him, he's an incredibly nice guy, we love him, I love him so much, he's so dedicated, he's a nice family, I have nothing against, just he decide he wants to make another adventure for his career and he doesn't want to stay.

So when this happened we are going to focus an help him until the last day he's here, and we're going to count for the players who stay here." STORY: Manchester City's Germany winger Leroy Sane has turned down the offer of a contract extension and will leave the club, manager Pep Guardiola said on Friday (June 19).

Sane's contract runs out at the end of next season.

Guardiola said he had wanted Sane to stay but the player wants to make a fresh start.

"When we make an offer to players it's because we want him.

He's a young player with incredible quality, special quality that is difficult to find all over the world," said the Spaniard.

"He's an incredibly nice guy, we love him, I love him so much, he's so dedicated, he's a nice family, I have nothing against, just he decide he wants to make another adventure for his career and he doesn't want to stay," he added.
