Sané joins Man City

Schalke 04 winger Leroy Sané has completed a transfer to Premier League side Manchester City, it was confirmed on Tuesday.

Sané has put pen to paper on a five-year deal at City, moving to the Etihad Stadium for a fee understood to be £37 million (43 million euros) plus add-ons.

Guardiola key to my decision - Sané

"One of the reasons I decided to join City was [manager] Pep Guardiola," the 20-year-old told his new club's website.

"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."

Sané made his Germany debut in November 2015.

Sané, who scored eight goals in 33 Bundesliga games last term as Schalke finished fifth, was part of the Germany squad that reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016.

Pep: Sané's a "special talent"

Guardiola said: "He is a special talent, and an exciting player that I think our supporters will enjoy watching."
