OFFICIAL: City sign Rúben Dias
Guardiola continues his centre-back obsession. The manager from Santpedor can now say out loud that he has another new one joining his squad: Rúben Dias.
The Portuguese defender, leader for Benfica, has decided to pack his bags and head to Manchester to work under Pep.
Barely 23 years old and he has brought a whopping 68 million euros into the Benfica coffers, a fee that could rise by another 3.6 million, in an extraordinary deal.
It is important to point out that he is already a player for his national team and has been picked out by many as a future leader of that side. His contract will last until 2025.
The deal was confirmed this Tuesday after both City and Benfica announced a deal in principle on Monday.
The arrival of Rúben Dias sees Otamendi go the other way to Lisbon. The Argentinian defender has signed for the next three seasons.
