Germany winger Leroy Sane will sign a five-year deal for Premier League side Manchester City, his Bundesliga club Schalke 04 confirmed on Tuesday.
“We have given the green light for the transfer. Those in charge of Manchester City behaved professionally at all times. There were difficult, but fair discussions,” said Schalke’s director of sport Christian Heidel.
The 20-year-old Sane was part of Germany’s Euro 2016 squad, has won four caps for his country and the City transfer is reportedly worth 37m (43m euros), plus add-ons, which is set to make Sane the most expensive German signing.
