    Until he's actually done anything wrong I'll continue to show him some respect, just like I did with Sterling and Gundogan.

    I would disagree regarding the statement about Bayern not being ‘capable’ of paying whatever City were asking (£130m??). They are one of the richest clubs and could easily pay that, but my guess is they were not ‘prepared’ to pay that amount knowing he wasn’t worth it. They are very savvy about money.

    Sane is a great player, could be inconsistent at times but overall he has done well for us. I think he played best when he had space to run into, at times he could be crowded out by our full backs pushing forward but i'm digressing. Pep has a fair choice of forwards so he never go into the automatic choice role like Raheem became. The injury put paid to his chances playing wise obviously and for the past 12 months he has been courted by Bayern. He hasn't commented to my knowledge by these players know what they're doing, they simply say nothing but reject any contract improvements by the current club . If he wanted to stay he would have said so a long time ago, to allay any fears and allow the manager to include him in his plans. These days there is very little loyalty in the game, and if Pep didn't want him, he would have been sold even if he wanted to stay . I don't like it but if the players use these tactics they should expect some flak. I much prefer players to be up front. IMO Sane will leave, he will use the fact we are not playing in the CL as his convenient excuse ( i don't think we will escape a ban)

    He signed a contract, if he rides it out for a free I have no problem with that (same as Milner) as long as he wants to win things. It's up to City's transfer bods to extract as much as possible for Bayern if we choose to sell.

    He would look silly, saying he left because we are not in the CL, if we are.
    I don't think players are required to give a reason, if they are sold or come to the end of a contract.

    I think it’s more to do with culturally they are not used to paying the going rate. They clearly get players to run contracts down - when they can and bully the rest of the Bundesliga - to hand over their best players - so paying top dollar or the market rate is the exception for them.

    I’m reading between the lines. You mean arrogant and corrupt with an extreme, exaggerated sense of self importance. Indicated by their inability to pay the going rate due to being the only big fish in a small pond.

    I get ya!

    Managers see out contracts, sportsmen in other sports do too. All seen a reasonable, even called “honouring the contract”.

    Yet footballers are chastised for doing it. Even called “running the contract down” and being “disrespectful”.

    I have no problem with anyone who sees out their contract.
