Danilo completes Man City move
Real Madrid right-back Danilo completed his move to Manchester City yesterday, 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.
