Douglas Luiz has become a new player of Manchester City.
The 19-year-old Brazilian has already passed a medical test that has shown no concern. "The Citizens" have announced his signature under the contract valid by June 30, 2022.
"We are delighted to welcome Douglas to Manchester. He is a really exciting player with great potential. We are all looking forward to work with him and we want to help him further with his football development," said Txiki Begiristain, sport director of the club from blue side of Manchester.
The young midfielder has been playing in his native Vasco. In all, he played in 17 games in their first team, scoring two goals in them. Douglas regularly plays in the Brazilian U-20 team.
City executives did not confirm this, but according to British journalists, this transfer cost them 12 million euros (the largest sale in Vasco history). In the near future we will not see him in the English club jersey. Brazilian will spend the 2017/2018 season in Spanish Girona, which is a partner of City.
