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 five-year contract after leaving Schalke, 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.
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.
City manager Pep Guardiola said: “He is a special talent and an exciting player that I think our supporters will enjoy watching.”
“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 side and I think he will be a fantastic asset to our club.”
Sane, who helped Germany reach the semi-finals at Euro 2016, scored eight goals in 33 Bundesliga appearances last season as Schalke finished fifth.
