Manchester City already brought Nathan Aké on board this summer, but Pep Guardiola has been looking for an extra central defender in recent weeks. For a long time Kalidou Koulibaly was the target, but City did not agree with Napoli. It then seemed to be aiming for Jules Koundé (Sevilla), but in the end it is another defender who will make the switch.
After Saturday night’s game against Moreirense, Benfica defender Ruben Dias confirmed in veiled words that he will move to City. “Tonight was special for me and I think you all know why,” he referred to Benfica TV’s reports of an impending transfer. The 23-year-old Dias had already been in the spotlight of a number of top clubs in recent years and is now taking the step to City.
The transfer of Ruben Dias is now also complete. Manchester City announced the arrival of the Portuguese defender through its official channels. Dias signed a six-season contract at the Etihad and will wear the number 3 jersey. As part of the deal, Nicolas Otamendi will move to Benfica, where the Argentinian has signed for three years.
