Manchester City in talks to sign Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus and Marlos Moreno - Sky sources

Pep Guardiola could push his spending at City to above £100m

Manchester City are in talks to sign Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus and Marlos Moreno, according to Sky sources.

Schalke midfielder Sane is expected back at his club on Wednesday after an extended break following Euro 2016 having told them last week he wanted to leave, with the German club valuing the 20-year-old at £40m.

The winger was outstanding in the Bundesliga last season scoring eight goals and registering six assists. He can operate on either flank and his potential arrival would further bolster Pep Guardiola's attacking options following the acquisition of Nolito for £13.8m from Celta Vigo earlier this summer. 

City remain in negotiations with the Bundesliga club, who are believed to want around £40m for the pacy 20-year-old.

The deals for Jesus and Moreno could be more complicated, however, with work permits potentially an issue, but City remain in talks with Palmeiras in Brazil and Colombia's Atletico Nacional for the two players.
