Sane close to join­ing Man City

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

LEROY SANE is close to com­plet­ing a move to Manch­ester City from Schalke for a fee of £37m plus add-ons.

The Bun­desliga club an­nounced yes­ter­day that the mid­fielder was in Manch­ester and had not joined their pre-sea­son train­ing camp in Aus­tria.

City man­ager Pep Guardi­ola con­firmed on 21 July he wanted to sign Sane.

The 20-year-old helped Ger­many reach the semi­fi­nals at Euro 2016, hav­ing made his in­ter­na­tional de­but in Novem­ber.

He told Schalke sport­ing di­rec­tor Chris­tian Hei­del ear­lier this sum­mer that he wanted to leave the club, ac­cord­ing to Ger­man me­dia.

Sane, a prod­uct of the youth sys­tem at Schalke, made his se­nior de­but for them in April 2014.

He scored eight goals in 33 Bun­desliga ap­pear­ances last sea­son as Schalke fin­ished fifth, miss­ing out on Cham­pi­ons League qual­i­fi­ca­tion for the sec­ond year in a row. — BBC Sport Daily Mail
