Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he does not want players “who do not want to stay here” following midfielder Brahim Diaz’s move to Real Madrid.
The 19-year-old has signed a six-and-a-half-year contract worth more than £21m with the Spanish giants, and was unveiled at the Bernabeu on Monday.
Spaniard Diaz joined City from Malaga aged 14 in 2013 and made 15 first-team appearances for the club.
“Hopefully other players won’t decide to move on,” said Guardiola.
“I don’t want people who don’t want to stay here, to be with us and try to achieve what we want to achieve.
“If players want to stay, the door is always open for them.”
