Guardiola was keen to get the exciting forward tied-down to a new three-year contract.

That still remains unsigned, and that has alerted Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham.

Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig also have a concrete interest in Sancho, according to the Daily Mail.

The England Under-17 international is regarded as one of the most promising teen talents in the country.

City have high hopes for him, and that was underlined when talks began over a lucrative new deal.

However, despite his undoubted talent, the route into the City first-team remains challenging.

Those concerns are understood to be the main reason behind his potential exit.

City will not let him go easily and will fight tooth and nail to keep the ace in Manchester.
