Man City sign £10.7m Brazilian - and loan him straight out

15 Juillet 2017

Manchester City have completed the signing of Brazilian under-20 worldwide Douglas Luiz, who has signed a five-year contract with the club after joining from Vasco Da Gama.

The midfielder, 19, has penned a five-year deal with the Premier League club, but will be loaned out to their new Spanish sister club, Girona, who have just been promoted to La Liga.

Director of Football at City, Txiki Begiristain, said: "We are pleased to welcome Douglas. Everyone here is looking forward to helping him develop his talent and progress in the game".

City will announce his next move in the coming days, with Girona thought to be the most likely loan destination for the teenager.

Earlier on Saturday, Douglas posted an Instagram message thanking Vasco for developing him during his formative years.

Luiz becomes the fourth Man City signing of the summer following the arrivals of Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva and Ederson. Douglas is a Brazil U-20 worldwide and has played 25 games for Vasco since breaking into the first team in 2016.
