Leroy Sane signs for Manchester City

Manchester, City – Manchester City have signed Germany international Leroy Sane from Schalke 04 for an undisclosed fee but its being rumored to be around $49 million, the club confirmed.

Sane, 20, has been Pep Guardiola’s top attacking target this summer and the new City boss has finally secured him on a five-year deal.

He told “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.”

As an attacking midfielder, Sane has scored 11 goals in 47 league appearances for the Shalke, and is known for being an intelligent playmaker who can work as well at either end of the pitch.
