Fabrizio Romano: Manchester City are in talks with Benfica to sign Ruben Dias

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City are now in talks with Benfica to sign Ruben Dias, and they are keen to include Nicolas Otamendi as a makeweight as part of the deal.

The Portuguese side wants £50 million for the defender, and Tottenham Hotspur are interested too, but are yet to submit a bid as they are focused on Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar.

Spurs have identified Dias as an option should a move for the Slovakian fall-through, but City see him as a top target.

Pep Guardiola’s side are keen on Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, but they haven’t been able to get a deal done for any and are now keen on the Portuguese.

Benfica manager Jorge Jesus hopes to keep the 23-year-old, but he admits his side are open to talk if they receive an important bid.
