Manchester City sign Real Madrid full back Danilo
Manchester City have completed the signing of Real Madrid full back Danilo for a fee of around £26.5m.#
The 26-year-old has signed a five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium and looks set to make his debut during City’s pre-season tour of the United States.
Danilo made 17 appearances for Real Madrid and can play at both full-positions and in midfield.
“I am very, very happy to be joining Manchester City,” Danilo told Manchester City’s official website.
“There has been strong interest from other Clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola. As soon as I heard of his interest, I knew immediately I wanted to be a City player.
“I can’t wait to get started and I’m looking forward to getting to know my new teammates over the coming weeks.”
The Brazil international joined Real Madrid from Porto in 2015.
