Being a Manchester City fan is a different feeling altogether. The ruthless and free spending nature of Man city’s owners makes sure that the fans never end up disappointed at the end of the transfer window, whether that’s the case at the end of the season too, is a different story altogether. Manchester city made Kyle Walker the most expensive right back in British history last week, but now various reports are suggesting that Man City have reached an agreement with Real Madrid, about the transfer of their Brazillian right back Danilo for a reported £26.4 mil + £4.4mil add-ons.
Danillo was linked with most of other clubs among Man City and Chelsea in the transfer window. But it looks like that Man city have moved swiftly and captured the highly-rated right back. Danilo joined Real Madrid from Porto in 2015 for a reported €31.5 million and has 15 caps for Brazil, having made his international debut in 2011.Danilo played 41 games for Real Madrid scoring 3 goals, but never managed to nail down a place in the starting line-up.
How will he fit in at Man City:
With the departures of senior right backs Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna, Pep Guardiola knew the team was weak in the right sided defensive area. After Kyle Walker signed on the dotted line, it became clear that Man city had signed a top quality right-back. But with the reported capture of Danilo, things get interesting at Man City. Kyle Walker can’t take his position in the starting line up for granted now, he knows that the talented Brazilian is ready to pounce over any of his fallacies. Moreover, Danilo will get the chance to showcase his ability in various other tournaments that Man City are involved and push harder for a first team place. But at the end of the day, Man City are the real winners as the healthy competition takes the team to a different level. The fans will be hoping that the expensively assembled squad can bring some silverware to the Etihad Stadium.
