Man City ‘complete deal’ for Danilo

Manchester City and Real Madrid have completed a deal for the transfer of Brazilian full-back Danilo, thought to be worth an initial €30m, say reports.

Sky Sport Italia broke the news on Wednesday afternoon that it was a ‘done deal’ between the clubs which looks set to see the defender end an anti-climatic two-year spell in Madrid.

Madrid paid €31.5m to take Danilo from Porto in 2015 and were keen to recoup as much of that as possible, hence their €30m asking price but such a deal with City is also expected to include €5m in add-ons.

Chelsea and Juventus were both strongly linked to the Brazilian but they reportedly were unwilling to go upwards of €20m for any deal.

Danilo made just 25 appearances for Madrid last season in his understudy role to Dani Carvajal at right-back.
