Manchester City sign Ruben Dias as Nicolas Otamendi joins Benfica. The Portuguese side confirmed the news on their official website.
Manchester City have signed centre-back Ruben Dias from Benfica in a transfer worth an initial £62million (€68m) with Nicolas Otamendi heading the opposite way in a separate deal.
Portugal international Dias, 23, has been a regular for Primeira Liga side Benfica since emerging through the academy ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.
The Portuguese side confirmed the news on their official website on Sunday, shortly before announcing a €15m (£13.67m) deal is in place for Otamendi, who must now undergo a medical.
City will pay an additional €3.6m (£2.1m) in add-ons for Dias should he trigger various performance-related clauses.
