Danilo completes Man City move

Real Madrid right back Danilo has completed a move to manchester City

LONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 23- Real Madrid right-back Danilo completed his move to Manchester City on Sunday, the Brazilian joining Pep Guardiola’s Premier League giants on a five-year contract.

The 26-year-old will now link up with City on their pre-season tour of the United States after agreeing personal terms and passing his medical.

“There has been strong interest from other clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola,” Danilo told his new club’s official website.

“As soon as I heard of his interest, I knew immediately I wanted to be a City player,” he added.

His departure from the European champions had been confirmed by Real boss Zinedine Zidane on Saturday on the eve of his team’s meeting with Manchester United in California.

According to the BBC he moves to Manchester on a  £26.5 million (29.5 million euros) deal.

Guardiola had made full-backs his top transfer priority in the close season having released Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna.

Danilo links up with City’s new recruit Kyle Walker, the Tottenham defender who signed a five-year contract for a fee that could rise with add-ons to £54 million (61m euros) this month.

Danilo, who joined European champions Real in 2015 from Porto, started just 17 Spanish league games last season with Dani Carvajal often preferred in the right-back role.
