Man City have completed the signing of Portuguese International Ruben Dias from Benfica.
As Nicolas Otamendi travels in the opposite direction, the Portugal centre-back signs a six-year deal with Citizens until 2026.
He is the third signing of the summer, following in the footsteps of Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake.
The 23-year-old centre-back has agreed a six-year deal with Man City and joins for an undisclosed fee.
Dias is a product of the youth academy of Benfica and has been a first-team regular for the last three seasons, helping them to win the 2018/19 Primeira Liga championship.
For the Lisbon giants, Dias has made over 100 appearances in three seasons. In 2018/19, he earned a league title and was capped by Portugal 19 times.
“To have the opportunity to join a club like Manchester City is a fantastic opportunity for me and one I couldn’t turn down,” he said the club’s official website.
“I believe I can improve here, at a club whose ambitions match my own and I will give everything to be successful and win titles.”
“He is another talented addition to the squad and someone who is only going to get better working under Pep.”
