​DONE DEAL? Man City ready to sign Benfica for Ruben Dias

Manchester City have secured the signing of Ruben Dias from Benfica.

He is the latest in a staggeringly long list of defenders signed by manager Pep Guardiola.

City, who lost 5-2 to Leicester City in the Premier League, should have Dias for their next league game.

The BBC reports the deal is all but done, with Dias signing from Benfica for £65 million.

City will send Nicolas Otamendi, who is 32, in the opposite direction.

It is a separate transfer valued at roughly £13.7 million.

Dias will compete with the likes of Nathan Ake, Aymeric Laporte and John Stones for a starting spot.
