Leroy Sané set for Man City move

Schalke’s Director of Sport Christian Heidel gave an interview on TV on Tuesday evening which hinted heavily at the upcoming big money transfer of Leroy Sané to Manchester City.

“(Leroy) Sané has clearly stated that he would like to move this summer” said Christian Heidel. “We have to accept it“.

It’s unclear whether the quote means Schalke will have to accept his transfer request or accept a bid for their prized asset.

Bayern Munich have given up interest on the talented attacking midfielder whilst new Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola continues to zone in on his man.

Heidel confirms it’s an English club

Heidel did not confirm the interest was from Manchester City but did admit that it was an English club that have taken Sane’s attention this summer.

Schalke are reportedly holding out for €50m for the 20-year-old German international, according to Kicker.
