Man City sign Danilo from Real Madrid on five-year contract

Lionel Messi is a machine claims Xavi Hernandez

Danilo left Real Madrid's pre-season training camp in LA to join up at City's base a short distance across the city yesterday and had his medical.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says full-back Danilo has "gone", with Manchester City believed to be close to completing a deal for the Brazil worldwide.

"But it's also the ambitious project of the club that convinced me to come".

The 26-year-old joined Real from Porto in a €31m deal in 2015, but found it particularly hard to usurp Dani Carvajal at the Bernabeu.

Manchester City are making light work of the transfer window, announcing Danilo as their latest signing after already bringing in the players Pep Guardiola has asked for - and getting rid of others.

The governor stated that it was very clear from the discussions that President Buhari followed developments at home very closely.

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

City's director of football Txiki Begiristain said: Danilo is a fine player who offers great versatility to our squad.

Brazilian Danilo, 26, becomes City's fifth signing of the summer following the arrival of Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva, Douglas Luis and goalkeeper, Ederson Moraes. He can play at both right-back and left-back as well as in midfield.

Danilo moved to Madrid from Porto for around £27m in 2015, going on to win one La Liga title, two Champions Leagues, a UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup. And he confirmed Guardiola believes he can do a job at a number of positions.
