Danilo is set to move to Manchester City, according to Gianluca di Marzio. The right-back was set to sign for Chelsea but in a late and dramatic twist, Pep Guardiola appears to have captured the Brazilian just a few days after landing Kyle Walker for €50 million from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The fee mentioned for Danilo is €30 million with a further €5 million in add-ons and he will sign for the next five seasons and will meet up with his new teammates on Thursday or Friday in Los Angeles. A clear-out at Manchester City at the start of the summer left Pep Guardiola with plenty of spots to fill in his squad. He brought in Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Kyle Walker and now, reportedly, Danilo as he moulds his squad into a title challenger.
The 26-year-old signed with Real Madrid two years ago from Porto and failed to break in at right-back ahead of the impressive Dani Carvajal. He has played in 56 games for the club and scored three goals.
