Leroy Sane put a long-running transfer story to the end, since making a €60 million move to Bayern Munich, but the time was taken to praise Manchester City and Pep Guardiola for what they did for him.
In a goodbye letter to the Blues, Sane wrote on social media: “Thank you very much for the wonderful experience and all the love over the past four years.”
“It was a very intense and fruitful period that I would certainly not forget.”
“We played a number of tournaments, scored a bunch of goals, set a few records, and kept 7 trophies together.”
“Thank you to all of the supporters, the workers, and my team-mates! With immense happiness and joy, I will remember this moment forever.”
“Thanks also to my mentor, who made me a stronger player and who has a big share of my 2018 PFA Young Player of the Year award.”
“I learned a lot and I feel very happy to be part of that journey.”
