Man City (were) planning €100M bid for Benfica star

Manchester City are considering their next move regarding Benfica defender Ruben Dias.

Dias has been on City's radar for much of the season.

Record says City were prepared to pay €100m for Dias this summer before the coronavirus pandemic prompted them to change their minds.

The report says that figure is the amount of Dias' release clause, and City were prepared to pay it to solve their defensive gap.

Now they're exploring whether Benfica would be willing to negotiate a lower fee for the stopper.
