Whether you liked Sane or not, he us no longer a city player and wasn't here long enough or played enough to become a city legend in the 3 full years he played for us.

A great talent but will be remembed in the same vein as many attackers we have had over the years, unlike this periods silva, kompany, zaba nd aguero who will be truly legendary in pur memory


Thanks for the time given but about as fussed about this as when Peter Beagrie left
Fernandinho, Yaya also added to that list imo.

Agreed. We would get Ben Mee back for a lot less. Top no nonsense defender who is never injured. We don't need a fancy fan. Laporte can do both. Or Thiago Silva for a years contract. He's on a free I think.
De Ligt has struggled a little since joining Juve , i think if Pep coached him he would make a great defender but that gets me thinking about Garcia he has always impressed me when he plays , he just lacks some height/physical presence but a back three of Garcia ,De Ligt , Laporte would be an impressive defensive line up , although three at the back isnt Pep's usual tactic

I'm not sure that had City matched Bayern's offer it would've made any difference. And by the sounds of things they were in his ear from that first summer.
Exactly, people forget he’s a German national joining the biggest club in Germany with an almost guaranteed title every year.

It’s a bit like an English player leaving Atletico after they won the league for a dominant English club, as well as earning double what Atletico were offering. In that scenario every single person on here would see it as a no brainer.

Pep clearly had personality issues with him.

We didn’t give him decent money fast enough, that’s on the club who should have tied him down far faster.

He was a massive reason for our recent success but was clearly not loved by Pep like Raz or Bernardo.
Shock horror - manager rates some players more than others .

It was reported up to 300k a week, pure guesswork but his base will be nearer 200k.

Sane was never staying unless we topped Bayern’s offer, Sterling’s contract is irrelevant.
If we'd have offered Sané a proper salary 18 months ago before Bayern and the 385k was even on the radar he'd have signed.

It's irrelevant now, he's gone. The deal NOW isn't too bad in the circumstances but getting to this situation is the problem. There would be 15 clubs in europe willing to pay him 300k a week right now so if you want to try to offer half of what other clubs will pay then let's see where that gets us.

If this tells us anything it tells us the value of players in the current market. A few months ago people talking £100m for Sane, he went for about half that amount. I just hope when it comes time for us to invest in new players our management team remember this.
We were never getting £100M from bayern for Sane with just a year on his contract, covid or no covid, and anyone quoting those numbers would be delusional.

You lot make me LOL. Moaning how much we are getting ffs. It’s not your money, the player doesn’t wanna play for City, he’s come back from a major injury which some players are never the same again and he has one year left and your dealing with the biggest bandits in Europe , well done txiki I say, masterclass
Bye thanks Leroy move on simple as that
