“There has been strong interest from other Clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola. As soon as I heard of his interest, I knew immediately I wanted to be a City player.” – Danilo
Danilo to #MCFC: Whenever I’ve seen him, he’s dominated vs. weak opposition and been taken apart by stronger. No middle ground.

The player becomes Pep Guardiola’s fifth summer signing this window for a fee of £27million.
Stones – £50m
Walker – £50m
Danilo – £26m
Ederson – £34m
If they want clean sheets they’d be better off just hiring Tony Pulis
