Manchester City have completed the signing of Germany winger Leroy Sane from Schalke, the Premier League club have announced.
The 20-year-old has signed a five-year deal at the Etihad Stadium after a fee, understood to be around £37million, was agreed between the two clubs.
Sane’s arrival continues new manager Pep Guardiola’s rebuilding of the City squad following the signings of Nolito, Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko this summer.

Sane told the club’s website, www.mancity.com: “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.”
