Man City ‘complete’ move for Real Madrid’s Danilo

Manchester City have completed a deal to sign Real Madrid defender Danilo, according to reports.

Interest from England in the Brazilian has been rife this summer with Manchester United, Chelsea and Pep Guardiola’s City showing interest.

Danilo joined Real Madrid back in 2015 from Porto and has made 55 appearances at the club, but he saw his playing time come under pressure from both Dani Carvajal and Marcelo last season, prompting his availability.

Madrid are happy to sell but have indicated to interested parties that they would only let him go for a fee in the region of £30m.

And, the defender is now set to move to the Etihad stadium after Sky Sport Italia broke the news on Wednesday afternoon that Guardiola would be willing to pay that amount.

His arrival at the club would see him join Kyle Walker, who arrived from Tottenham Hotspur in a £50m deal last week.

Having began his career in Brazil with America-MG, the full-back moved to Santos where he further impressed and gained a move to Portuguese side Porto.

He would later help them to win the Primeira Liga on two occasions before joining Madrid, where he has won two Champions League winners medals.
