Guardiola closes in on second monumental Bundesliga signing, Man City deal close


Manchester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are buzzing as they are closer to landing one of Europe’s most exciting youngsters.

According to MARCA, City are set to announce the signing of Leroy Sane from Schalke 04.

The 20-year-old is said to be a top priority for Pep Guardiola and they are close to confirming his arrival to the Etihad Stadium, as the Spanish tactician plots his monumental rebuild.

The German international will reportedly come at a great cost to City as it is believed the German club are willing to sell him for around €50 million, but it has not been revealed as of yet how much City have offered for him.

Real Madrid fans in the Tavern will feel very let down after Los Blancos were reportedly close to signing him in January and would have hoped to agree a deal this summer.

The likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also said to have been interested in the midfield sensation, though Guardiola looks to have stolen a march on his super power rivals.

Manchester City fans. How much would you be willing to spend on Leroy Sane? Let us know your thoughts below.
