Pep Guardiola has come out to explain that the future of Manchester City winger Leroy Sane is beyond him.
The German winger, who has been injured all season with knee ligament damage suffered in the Community Shield last August, is wanted by Bayern Munich.
City placed a £135million price tag on Sane last summer – before his injury – but his enforced lay-off saw the collapse of any switch back to his native Germany.
Sane and his representatives have so far resisted City's offer of a new deal, with the 24-year-old expected to join Bayern in the summer.
Guardiola admitted he is powerless to affect Sane's decision over his future and said: “His knee looks good and after that, it’s none of my business. It’s not in my hands what he does.
“It’s a question for Leroy, the agents and the club.
“I’m not involved. What’s important is that he has to recover well, that’s the most important thing. He knows what we think of him, it depends on him.
“But each person has own family, desires, dreams and I cannot do anything else.’’
