Manchester City have announced the signing of Douglas Luiz from Vasco Da Gama. The 19-year-old midfielder put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Premier League giants. The fee is undisclosed but believed to be £10m.
This brings City’s spending to £130m this summer. The announcement of Luiz comes one day after they made Kyle Walker the most expensive defender of all time. Luiz arrives to far less fanfare.
A Brazil U20 international, it’s likely that he’ll spend next season away from the Etihad. It’s rumoured that he’ll spend a campaign on loan at Girona CF in Spain. City will announce their plans for Luiz soon.
