The transfer fee Manchester City paid is believed to be between 2.5 to 3 million euros.

Philippe Sandler and his contract with Manchester City is to expire at the end of this season. But, the club wants to make sure that he stays even if he is not going to feature in the first team this season. In particular, they want him to sign a new deal.
