English Premier League side, Manchester City has announced the signing of Ruben Dias from Portuguese side, Benfica for a record fee of £64.3 million.
The right-footed Portuguese centre-back signed a six-year contract with the Pep Guardiola tutored side.
The deal surpasses the £62.8m City paid for Rodri who joined from Spanish side, Atletico Madrid last season.
23-year-old Dias is seen as the right player to partner with Aymeric Laporte in the heart of City’s defense.
Also, Nicolas Otamendi joins Benfica from City to replace the void created by the departure of Dias.
