Manchester City have completed the signing of Real Madrid defender Danilo for a fee believed to be £26.5m.

The 26-year-old Brazil international has signed a five-year deal and will join City on their pre-season tour of the United States. Danilo can play in both full-back roles as well as in midfield, and is City's fourth major signing of the summer.

-There was interest from other clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola,he said.

His arrival takes City's summer spending to almost £150m, following the recruitment of England international Kyle Walker (£45m), Portugal midfielder Bernardo Silva (£43m) and Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson Moraes (£35m). The club have also agreed a £52m deal for 23-year-old Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy and sold left-back Aleksandar Kolarov to Serie A club Roma for £4.5m.

Danilo's move is subject to him receiving a work permit, meaning he is unlikely to make his debut when City face Real on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
