Man City complete Danilo signing from Real Madrid on five-year deal

Man City complete Danilo signing from Real Madrid on five-year deal

Danilo underwent a medical in the United States before moving in a deal believed to be worth £26.9m.

With another huge pair of transfers - Alvaro Morata to Chelsea and Danilo to Manchester City - being announced this weekend, it's clear that the Premier League is nearly certainly the main destination for the world's top players right now.

Danilo is leaving Madrid two years after joining from Porto, having won back-to-back Champions League titles and the Spanish title once.

Here's what we learned in Manchester United's 2-1 shootout win over Real Madrid after 90 minutes of their International Champions Cup match finished 1-1.

Speaking to City's official website, Danilo said: "I'm really looking forward to the challenge and would love to win the Champions League with Manchester City".

Shaw has all the attributes: he's left-footed, quick and good going forward, but he needs to work on his concentration to tick all of Mourinho's boxes.

GOP health plan fiasco a long-running drama
The failure - so far - of the Republican attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare is a lesson in the wages of political bad faith. On Thursday , the White House and GOP leaders looked for ways to win over senators.

With Benjamin Mendy set to be signed by Manchester City from Monaco for £52m, England right-back Kyle Walker was, for a short while at least, the most expensive defender in the history of football after City paid £50m to bring him in from Tottenham Hotspur.

Given the expected competition for places between the new arrivals at full-back, Danilo's versatility is a bonus for City. I don't have a favourite position.

Mourinho said he saw an improvement in Martial's work ethic in training ahead of the new campaign but the 21-year-old will need to do more on the pitch to impress him. "I just hope to help him out as he expects".

"I prefer just to play".

All that remains to be seen is whether or not Zinedine Zidane can continue to let him grow and establish himself for Madrid, or if a move to one of these Premier League giants is the best solution for Asensio.
