Ruben Dias-Benfica-Sign for Manchester City

Manchester City have agreed on a deal with Benfica to sign the Portuguese international Ruben Dias.

The 23 year old is one of the most talented young defenders around Europe right now and he could prove to be a quality addition to pep guardiola’s side.

Manchester City have looked vulnerable at the back this season and they conceded five goals to Leicester City last time out.

The Portuguese defender could form a quality partnership with Laporte at the back this season.

It will be interesting to see if he can settle in quickly and make an immediate impact for the Premier League Giants.

Manchester City failed to defend their title last season because of their defensive problems and those problems have not been fixed yet.

It will be interesting to see if the Benfica player can address those concerns for Guardiola in the coming months.

Manchester City are reportedly paying 65 million pounds for Ruben Dias and they will be hoping for immediate impact from the Portuguese international.

Benfica have also confirmed that Nicolas Otamendi is heading the other way in a deal worth around 13.6 million pounds.

The Portuguese defender has agreed personal terms with Manchester City and he has completed his medical as well.

It will be interesting to see if Guardiola decides to throw him into action in the next game.

The 23 year old is a confident and fearless defender who has the tools to succeed in the Premier League. A world class manager like Pep Guardiola could coach him into a future star.
