England Premier League coach Josep Guardiola talked about Ibrahim Diaz, who wants to leave the club on Friday.
Guardiola stressed that his team did all in their power to keep their promising forward Moroccan striker Ibrahim Diaz, pointing out that he would not be attached to him if he wants to leave.
The 19-year-old striker, whose contract with the Premier Champion expires next summer, is not satisfied with his lack of ability to play in the first team.
According to media reports, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid were interested in securing their services with guarantees to play more in the team. Diaz will have the opportunity to begin formal negotiations with clubs wishing to receive their services from the beginning of January (starting with the passing of winter transfer) and giving him initial approval to defend one of the following seasons.
"My advice, if you do not want to stay, you have to leave." Before we came to the club, it was a serious case (Sancho) and Phil (Fuden), he told reporters: "We want to extend his contract and we will do it all, but it depends on him. He has to decide and no more. "
Sancho is a member of the Manchester City Academy who has decided to leave the team and defend the colors of Borussia Dortmund, where he played great this season, leading him to England's defense, where he played 3 games under Gareth Southgate.
On the other hand, Fuden had similar disappointments to Diaz and Sancho in the central reserve for Guardiola, although Manchester City was confident of signing him for a long-term contract.
"I can not say that we did not do everything to interest them, he and his family – as a human being, as a person, as a football player," Guardiola said.
"We can not do more than we did with Ibrahim, for example, or with others, coming to the club as little children, but the market is a market," he said. "Manchester City goes to England to look for players who defend the colors of other clubs and want to stay there."
"There were many players in Barcelona, such as Cesc Fabregas, who wanted to go to Arsenal," he said. "All we can do is talk to families and find out what they want to do with these young people. Tell them the truth, and how difficult they are in some periods."
