Pep Guardiola has ruled out the possibility of signing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund as a replacement for Leroy Sane.
Sane has been sold by City to Bayern Munich.
Sancho left City for Dortmund in 2017 and has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
"No, no. no, he decided to leave," Guardiola told a news conference on Wednesday. "Why should he decide to come back? When he decided to move to Dortmund it's not because he is going to decide to come back later. It would make no sense. He didn't want to be here, so that is why he doesn't want to come back here."
