Sane joins Man City in £37m deal

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

GER­MANY mid­fielder Leroy Sane has com­pleted his move to Manch­ester City for a fee of £37m plus add-ons.

The 20-year-old has signed a con­tract af­ter leav­ing Schalke.

City man­ager Pep Guardi­ola said: “He is a spe­cial tal­ent and an ex­cit­ing player that I think our sup­port­ers will en­joy watch­ing.”

Sane, who helped Ger­many reach the semi­fi­nals at Euro 2016, scored eight goals in 33 Bun­desliga ap­pear­ances last sea­son as Schalke fin­ished fifth.

“He has great tech­ni­cal abil­ity, is com­fort­able on the ball and there is much to ad­mire about the way he plays foot­ball,” Guardi­ola added.

“He is fast, en­joys cre­at­ing chances for others, works hard for the team and scores goals too. He also has a very pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and will fit in well.

“At 20, he is still de­vel­op­ing as a player but he is al­ready a mem­ber of the Ger­man na­tional five-year side and I think he will be a fan­tas­tic as­set to our club.”

Sane said one of the rea­sons for join­ing City was to work with Guardi­ola.

“I think he can make me a more com­plete player,” said Sane.

“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.”— Su­perS­port
