Transfer: Manchester City sign Sane from Schalke for £37m

Manchester City have completed the signing of Germany winger Leroy Sane from Schalke for £37m.

The German international becomes Pep’s Guardiola fifth signing and will wear the No.19 shirt.

Sane has signed a five-year deal which will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until at least 2021.

He told ManCity.com, “I feel really good, I’m happy to be here and happy that it has all worked out. Now I can settle here in Manchester and play for City.

“One of the reasons I decided to join City was Pep Guardiola; he convinced me to come here and that I can continue to progress. I know I will learn a lot under him and now I can take the next step in my career.

“I followed Pep at Barcelona and at Bayern where he achieved a lot and worked really well with young players.

“I think he can make me a more complete player. I think I will need a bit of time to start with because it’s another league and there’s a different style of play but I think I can adapt very quickly.”

City boss Guardiola, said of the signing, “He is a special talent, and an exciting player that I think our supporters will enjoy watching.

“He has great technical ability, is comfortable on the ball and there is much to admire about the way he plays football. He is fast, enjoys creating chances for others, works hard for the team and scores goals, too. He also has a very positive attitude and will fit in well with our squad.

“At 20, he is still developing as a player but he is already a member of the German national side and I think he will be a fantastic asset to our Club. We are very happy he decided to join us.”

Sane joins Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito, Aleks Zinchenko and Aaron Mooy in arriving at the Etihad Stadium in the 2016 summer transfer window.
