(REUTERS) - Leroy Sane has travelled to England ahead of a proposed move to Premier League club Manchester City, the German winger's side Schalke 04 have confirmed.
The 20-year-old, who has not travelled with the Bundesliga club for a training camp in Austria, scored eight goals and had six assists for Schalke last season as the club finished fifth in the league table.
"Leroy #Sane is currently in Manchester and will not be travelling with #Schalke to the training camp," Schalke tweeted on their verified account (@s04-en) on Monday (Aug 1).
The promising youngster had asked to leave Schalke, the club's director confirmed last month, and British media reports said that the deal could be worth around £30 million (S$52.9 million).
Sane was also part of Joachim Low's Germany squad for the European Championship, making a late substitute appearance in the 2-0 defeat by France in the semi-finals.
