Manchester City Complete Leroy Sane Transfer – Manchester City have shown their desire to win this season with the purchase of highly-rated German winger, Leroy Sane.
The transfer fee paid to Schalke 04 for Sane was not disclosed, and the 20-year old player joins City on a five-year contract. ESPN reports however that the transfer cost 37 million pounds, and could rise up to 46.5 million pounds.
“I feel really good, I’m happy to be here and happy that it has all worked out,” Sane told Man City’s official website. “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 manager Pep Guardiola added: “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.”
