Man City sign Danilo from Real Madrid on five-year contract

Man City sign Danilo from Real Madrid on five-year contract

The move ends two less than successful years for the former Porto player, who joined Madrid for around 35 million euros ($40.81 million) two years ago, but failed to win a regular place in the Madrid side due to the form of Dani Carvajal, reports Xinhua news agency.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane said the 26-year-old Brazil global has left the club's training base in Los Angeles to have a City medical.

He won two Champions Leagues, one LaLiga title, one Club World Cup and one UEFA Super Cup in Spain.

The 26-year-old Brazil worldwide, agreed a five-year contract with City and joins subject to a work permit.

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".

That is very important. "I see him very happy and focused and working better than ever so for me 100% he stays with us". Mourinho said United were open to a move for the keeper but clubs had withdrew their interest.

Manchester City have signed defender Danilo from Spanish champions Real Madrid on a five-year contract for an undisclosed fee, the Premier League club said on Sunday.

If Benjamin Mendy is indeed signed from Monaco as expected, Danilo will be his backup as well, which means Guardiola might be happy with just three full-backs instead of four. We've seen enough times that moves can turn into disasters for players - perhaps they'll fall out with their manager, or just not fit in with their new team. "So I'm very excited to start on August 12".

Pep Guardiola is understood to envisage using Danilo in a variety of roles, including left-back and defensive midfield, meaning he would not merely be cover for Walker on the right-hand side of defence.

He added: "The last days have been very long for me because I wanted to be here and meet my team-mates because they're great players, and I want to help them face the new season". I don't have a favorite position.
