Leroy Sane, is in Manchester to finally completing his move to Manchester city, his current club, Schalke 04 have confirmed.
Sane is believed to cost City an initial £31.2million and travelled to England on Sunday. The 20-year-old stayed in a city centre hotel overnight ahead of being announced as Guardiola’s latest signing this week.He had made his desire to leave abundantly clear to Schalke all summer, with sporting director Christian Heidel saying: ‘Leroy told me on Wednesday again he has requested to change clubs.’
The 20-year-old, who has been left out of the Schalke squad traveling to Austria for their pre-season training camp, can operate on either flank and his arrival would further bolster Pep Guardiola’s attacking options following the acquisition of Nolito for £13.8m from Celta Vigo earlier this summer.
