Following Manchester City latest defeat in the hands of Leicester City over the weekend, Pep Guardiola has move to cover his defensive position in his team.


The Citizens shipped five goals against Foxes at the Etihad Stadium which saw Jamie Vardy score a hat trick. The game ended in a 5-1 loss against Brendan Rodgers side.

If you recall that Manchester City have been unable to find the right replacement at the defense since Vincent Kompany left the team in 2019.

Pep Guardiola has since tried Fernandinho who is a midfielder in that position but seems not to work due to the Brazilian age and lack of pace.

While John Stones has been inconsistent along with Nicolas Otamendi. Also, Emerick Laporte spends most time in injury.

This season, Guardiola has signed Nathan Ake from Bournemouth for fee of 50m pounds.

Also, Ferran Torres who is a winger joined from Valencia.


Manchester City have been linked with several defenders in Europe but seems to have signed one.

On Monday, Manchester City signed Ruben Dias for £62 million ($79m) from Benfica.

The Portuguese put pen to paper on a six years deal with Benfica.

The defender could make his debut at Leeds on Saturday.

He has been handed the jersey number 3.


The deal also saw Nicolas Otamendi move in the opposite direction to Benfica in a deal worth £14m ($17m).

Just so you know, Dias has won 19 caps for Portugal and will be handed a boost in the squad with the presence of his Portuguese team mate, Bernardo Silva.

“To have the opportunity to join a club like Manchester City is fantastic for me and one I couldn’t turn down,” he said.

“Their success speaks for itself. They have been the dominant team in England over the last few years, playing an attacking brand of football which I feel suits my own game.

“It is really exciting to be part of such a talented squad and to play for a world-class manager like Pep Guardiola, who has a proven track record of developing young players like myself.

“I believe I can improve here, at a club whose ambitions match my own and I will give everything to be successful and win titles.”
