Man City boss Pep Guardiola speaks out on failed Jorginho deal

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has given his verdict on star winger Leroy Sane missing out on the 2018 FIFA World Cup ahead of the new season.

Instead, the Italy global followed new Blues head coach Maurizio Sarri from Napoli to Stamford Bridge, becoming the club's first signing of the summer transfer window.

"It would have been a mistake for us and for him if he came here when he wanted to go with Maurizio". "I know it is not easy for him but we will try and find a solution", said Guardiola.

"My advice for all players is they have to go where they want to go, and in the end it would have been a mistake for him and for us if he'd made a decision to come here when he wanted to go with Maurizio and Chelsea".

"So it is important that English football has received an exceptional player and at the end if they want to come, it's better they come".

So far the tentative interest in Hart - who has 75 England caps, but was left out of the World Cup squad - has come from overseas clubs.

Hart is back at City after unsuccessful loan spells at Torino and West Ham.

"It could be like what happened with Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz - he could stay with us, because from what we have seen in these days, the impression is good, so good".

He last played for City in a Champions League qualifier against Steaua Bucharest in August 2016 having been axed by Guardiola following his arrival in Manchester two years ago. We tried, but players have to go where they go. If the days before they are exhausted and they don't want to fight for the Community Shield, play at Arsenal, then stay on holidays.

"I was disappointed (not to sign him)", he added.

"We'll decide on the last day".

"Today everyone watches the Premier League so I have watched plenty of it in my time", Jorginho said on the Chelsea website.
