Guardiola wants Sane to stay
Sane has been heavily linked with a move to the Bundesliga champions in this transfer window, with Bayern having confirmed their interest. The Germany international came off the bench to set up a Raheem Sterling goal on Wednesday, as City cruised to a 4-1 win over West Ham in the Premier League Asia Trophy. And Guardiola did not shy away from acknowledging his wish for Sane – who scored 16 goals in all competitions last season – to remain at City.
"I have said many times that we want people to be happy here and we want to help Leroy to reach his potential," Guardiola told a news conference. "He's a great player with incredible quality."
One player who has left City is Vincent Kompany, with the defender having called time on his 11-year stint in Manchester at the end of last season. Kompany has returned to his former club Anderlecht in a player-manager role, leaving City without a club captain, and Guardiola revealed a new skipper will only be chosen when all of his players have returned to pre-season training.
"We will choose the captain," Guardiola said. "We will wait until everyone is back and they will choose their captain."
