Manchester City have completed the signing of Germany winger Leroy Sane from Schalke for £37m.

Sane has signed a five-year deal at the Etihad Stadium, further bolstering Pep Guardiola’s attacking options ahead of the new season following the acquisition of Nolito for £13.8m from Celta Vigo earlier this summer.

The 20-year-old was left out of Schalke’s squad travelling to Austria for their pre-season training camp having informed Schalke last week he wanted to leave to push through a move to City.

Sane, who will wear the No 9 shirt, told the club’s 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.”
