Man City are signing Schalke starlet Leroy Sane [Sport]

The Pep Effect continues

Spanish paper Sport delivered a huge piece of transfer news on Monday regarding Manchester City.

According to journalist Geard Romero, Pep Guardiola has a deal agreed to sign Schalke starlet Leroy Sane this summer.

Sane is currently at Euro 2016 with the German national team.

The 20-year-old is an incredibly exciting talent who scored nine goals and chalked up seven assists in 42 appearances for the Royal Blues last term.

Sport fail to mention and figures involved in the Sane deal, nor any information on the length of the contract being discussed, however it is reported that “Manchester City have completed the signing of Leroy Sane”.

Man City have been chasing Sane for a while

Back in January, Bild claimed that the Sky Blues were ready to make a 55 million euro bid for Sane.

Such a fee would make the winger not only the most expensive German teenager ever, but the most expensive German player period.

As for the player himself, he recently talked up a possible move to FC Barcelona:

I think next season I will play at Schalke. However, I make no secret. Sometime in the future I want to play abroad at an even bigger club than Schalke. Most of all at Barca – even as a little boy that was my dream club.
