Pep Guardiola returned to Germany with Manchester City to play his first game as City manager and his first game against his former club, with hope of leaving with schalke 04 Leroy Sane.
Schalke are insisting that Manchester City pay their £42million asking price for the 20-year-old German born winger who is seen as an asset, but City seems to be unwilling to to pay that high for the lad.
Guardiola noted that “Sane is still a player of Schalke”, as his side take off from Munich to China for pre-season tour, but also added they (Manchester City) have talked to him and Schalke to let them know we are interested in him. But as at now, we are not sure to get him.
Guardiola was quoted to saying that “There’s a difference between Manchester City and Schalke and it’s quite big. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but right now he’s with Schalke.
