The 19-year-old Samba star penned a five-year deal after completing his medical this week in an initial fee thought to be around £10.7million.

Manchester City have signed Brazilian Under-20 worldwide of Douglas Luiz from Vasco Da Gama in a deal reportedly worth £10.7million.

Douglas helped Vasco back into Brazil's Serie A during his debut season in 2016, while he has missed just one match this campaign - form that earned him a call-up to Brazil's squad for the South American Under-20 Championship earlier this year.

According to City Watch, he is set to spend the season on-loan with La Liga side Girona a potential destination.

Com dúvida na escalação, Santos pode ter 3º goleiro contra o Vasco
A partida diante da equipe de São Januário pode ser a oportunidade de o garoto mostrar serviço para o técnico Levir Culpi. No treino desta quinta-feira, o camisa 12 caiu no gramado de mal jeito em uma dividida e foi atendido imediatamente.

The Citizens announced the signing via their website on Saturday, and director of football Txiki Begiristain said: "We are pleased to welcome Douglas".

City then went on to say that a further statement will be released by the Club in the coming days which will outline Douglas's immediate development pathway.

He attracted the attention of City's scouts based in South America and will follow in the footsteps of striker Gabriel Jesus, who has been a huge success following his move from Palmeiras in January. "Everyone here is looking forward to helping him develop his talent and progress in the game".

Luiz becomes the fourth Man City signing of the summer following the arrivals of Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva and Ederson.
