It could be off field reasons, a personality clash with another player(s) or the management, a better contract elsewhere, more playing time, who knows.
But, he isn’t better than Sterling or Bernado so isn’t going to be the first choice in those positions unless he ups his game, of which there hasn’t been enough evidence of this year. Like most folk, I hope he stays, but if he wants out then so be it. Get a decent fee for him, wish him well and get his replacement in.
This will happen every year with some player or other
I think you talk a lot of sense mate.
My only issue is that things change season on season. So last season Sanè was considered better than Sterling. This season it's Sterling.
Sanè is very young and for me it's an issue that we can't, and we struggle, to stop players heads being turned (if that's what it is). We've just done back to back league titles, we're potentially going to do the treble and we can't convince Sanè and Gundo that's enough?? That's an issue imo and where Pep needs to be more of a man manager. All "ifs" though based on the scenario his head has been turned.
