Douglas Luiz Completes Manchester City Switch
Manchester City are set to complete the signing of 19-year old Vasco da Gama midfielder Douglas Luiz. The Brazilian arrived in Manchester on Friday for a medical and to put the finishing touches on the transfer.
Douglas will immediately be loaned to one of City’s partner clubs Girona FC, who have just been promoted to La Liga. The fee is in the region of £10m which could eventually rise to £14.1m with add ons and bonuses.
The CBF officially listed his Vasco contract as having ended and City are expected to announce the deal imminently, once formalities have been completed. Douglas is a Brazil U-20 international and has played 25 games for Vasco since breaking into the first team in 2016.
