Manchester City sign Brazilian Douglas Luiz from Vasco Da Gama 


Manchester City have signed Brazilian Under-20 international of Douglas Luiz from Vasco Da Gama in a deal reportedly worth £10.7million.

The midfielder, 19, has penned a five-year deal with the Premier League club, but will be loaned out to their new Spanish sister club, Girona, who have just been promoted to La Liga.

The Blues feel playing in Spain’s top flight will aid Douglas’ development and help him make an immediate impact when he does eventually come to England.

City’s director of football Txiki Begiristain said on theclub’s official website: “Douglas is an exciting player with great potential. Everyone here is looking forward to helping him develop his talent and progress in the game.”
