- Leroy Sane who has registered 10 goals and 10 assists for Man City this season could be told to leave the club due to his poor attitude
- The relationship between Sane and his manager Guardiola is thought to be strained
- Sane, 23, has started just 21 times in the Premier League this season
Last season’s PFA young player of the year Leroy Sane could be offloaded during the summer by Manchester City due to his poor attitude.
According to a report on The Sun, Man City manager Pep Guardiola is running out of patience with the German star, and his attitude in training is one major factor the Citizens hierarchy are already searching for a potential replacement.
Despite being one of the only three players in Man City squad to have registered 10 or more goals and 10 or most assists in the Premier League this season, Sane who was a £37 million signing from Schalke in 2016, has started just 21 times in the league.
The 23-year-old German has played second fiddle in most games this season to Bernando Silva, a surprise retrogression from last season, where he played a huge role in Man City’s road to winning the league title with a record 100 points.
Sane was rewarded with the PFA young player of the year award for his effort after scoring 13 goals and providing 14 assists across all competitions last season which was only just his second season with the club.

The Citizens will need to trigger a monster £102million release clause to sign the 19-year-old from Portugal.
Felix became the youngest player ever to score a Europa League hat-trick in April and his speed and technical ability as caught the attention of Pep Guardiola.
