REVEALED: Sane, Gabriel Jesus ponder quitting Man City

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is battling to keep his squad together, it has been claimed.

El Chiringuito reports there are 'seven or eight' City stars that are seeking a move away from the Etihad at the end of the season.

They claim that forwards Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus are unhappy about their amount of game time this season, with both finding themselves on the bench regularly.

The Brazilian has started just eight Premier League games this season - coming on as a substitute on 18 occasions in the top-flight.

While Sane has been an unused substitute in four out of the last eight Prem games with Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva preferred instead.

Their request to leave will trigger a response from a number of players in the City squad who are convinced that Pep Guardiola will continue to leave them out.
