Sane, meanwhile, played just 13 minutes of the Community Shield on Sunday before hobbling off with a knee injury.
However, Guardiola's confident his injury isn't too serious.
"The first impression was not good," the City boss said after the Community Shield victory. "But I think not bad I don't know as I have not spoken to the doctor.
"I will wait but I think he will be okay."
The Spaniard wants Sane to stay but insists the decision rests with the player.
"He has to decide. If he wants and there is an agreement, then it's good. But if he wants to leave, he can do it. We will be sad - hopefully he stays."
Sane began his professional career in Germany's top flight with Schalke before completing a £37 million transfer to City in 2016.
