Manchester City announce the signing of Leroy Sane

Manchester City have announced the signing of German international winger Leroy Sane from FC Schalke.

The 20 year old has signed a 5 year contract with Pep Guardiola’s side and will wear the number 19 shirt.

Sane told Manchester City’s official website : “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.”

Leroy Sane played 42 times in all competitions for Schalke last season scoring 9 goals.
