Manchester City are poised to complete the signing of Leroy Sane with his club Schalke confirming the Germany winger is in England.
Schalke said on Monday that the 20-year-old Sane has travelled to Manchester and not to their pre-season training camp in Austria.
"Leroy #Sane is currently in Manchester and will not be travelling with #Schalke to the training camp. #s04" the Bundesliga club posted on their official Twitter account.
Essen-born Sane, who scored eight goals in 33 Bundesliga games for Schalke last season, is now expected to undergo a medical in Manchester on Monday.
The four-times capped winger could make his debut for Pep Guardiola's side against Arsenal in a pre-season friendly in Gothenburg on Sunday.
Guardiola has already signed Spanish forward Nolito from Celta Vigo and Germany midfielder Ilkay Gundogan from Borussia Dortmund since becoming City manager this summer.
