OFFICIAL : CITY COMPLETES SANE DEAL
As we continue our coverage of the transfer window which I must say its one of the craziest I’ve ever witnessed as a football fan, now what more can beat this, as reports coming in from Manchester has it that Man City has completed the deal for 20-year old Schalke winger Loroy Sane for a fee believed to be around £37m which could also rise to £42m based on add-ons.
Sane, who came through the youth ranks at Schalke, scored 13 goals in 57 senior appearances for the club and was also named in the Germany squad for Euro 2016.
And the young attacker has now revealed that he cannot wait to begin work under Pep Guardiola as the new Premier League season draws near.
“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,” he said.
“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.
