Manchester City has completed the arrival of Ruben Dias from Benfica. The 23-year-old Portuguese defender has to solve Pep Guardiola’s defensive problems. Nicolas Otamendi makes the opposite movement and becomes a teammate of Jan Vertonghen.
After Vincent Kompany’s departure from Manchester City, there was a gap in the rear. Aymeric Laporte tried his best, but was unable to keep the defense straight on his own. That became clear again this week in the 5-2 loss against Leicester City.
With Ruben Dias, City hopes to have finally found a replacement for Kompany. The Portuguese defender has been coloring Benfica’s defense for 3 seasons and has now signed a 6-year contract in the Premier League.
“This is a fantastic opportunity that I could not pass up”, said Dias on his performance. “It is exciting to be part of this strong team and I think I can take big steps here.”
