Man City agree Ruben Dias swap terms with Benfica

Manchester City are on the brink of signing Benfica defender Ruben Dias in a cash-plus-player swap deal.

O Jogo says City are paying €50m cash for Dias with Nicolas Otamendi also moving in the opposite direction. Otamendi is valued at €15m by both clubs.

Saturday's game against Moreirense is expected to be Dias' last for Benfica.

Before the deal reached the press today, Benfica coach Jorge Jesus hinted at an expectation that Dias would be sold.

"He is essential at this moment in the team," Jorge Jesus admitted. "But I have been used over the years at Benfica to sell the best ones and let them buy others. If I liked it? No. But if the financial factor is important and I have to be, as always, ok. The coach has to understand all of this."
