Just like we announced back on 14 July, Leroy Sané signed for Manchester City for between £37m and £46.5m, depending on the source.

Manchester City and Pep Guardiola have been trying to sign Sané for a while now, and had a £32m bid refused last winter.
The super-talented 20-year-old German offensive player will sign a four-year deal with City, and will add to the competition on the wings, where City have players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Jesus Navas. Guardiola also signed Nolito.
