Man Utd boost as Guardiola rules out Man City signing Sancho

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has ruled out the club re-signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho as a replacement for the Bayern Munich bound Leroy Sane.

Sancho, who is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in European football, has been linked with a return to his homeland of England this summer.

But despite losing Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich, Guardiola says the club won't try and lure Sancho back to the Etihad.

"He decided to leave, why should he come back?" the City boss said ahead of Thursday's clash with new champions Liverpool.

"When he decided to move to Dortmund it's not that he's going to come back. It would make no sense. If he wanted to leave, I'd say he doesn't want to come back.

"It's part of the process, we'd like to stay with the players of the last 10 years to be eternal but we grow in years and we have to replace them with new players."

The news will be welcomed by Manchester United, who are heavily interested in signing the England international.
