Man City complete Danilo signing from Real Madrid on five-year deal

Man City complete Danilo signing from Real Madrid on five-year deal”

United States's forward Clint Dempsey (left) moves the ball against Costa Rica's defender Giancarlo Gonzalez during the CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal match in Arlington, Texas.

Zinedine Zidane believes Real Madrid are a striker short following Alvaro Morata's move to Chelsea, but remains non-committal over talk of a move for Monaco's teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe. "I just hope to help him out as he expects".

"He's on holiday and he will be back with us on the fifth (of August)". I listen, just like everyone else, but the only thing I'm concerned with is what he wants to do with Real Madrid.

Firstly, he's 27 years old, and so it's probably safe to say he's in his prime right now and isn't really likely to improve dramatically with Guardiola's influence - after all, his former boss at Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino, already improved Walker's game hugely and is recognised more as a defensive coach than Guardiola has ever been. I'm not saying we're lacking a striker, but there's one missing that we had here a year ago. We're all here and there are 28 players. We'll look at how we're going to manage things. I'm not so sure.

After Real's title runs in La Liga and for a second consecutive year in the Champions League, Zidane is confident his club will be ready when the time comes to defend those crowns.

On playing in the Premier League, Danilo said: "It is a competition I always liked, I always wanted".

With another huge pair of transfers - Alvaro Morata to Chelsea and Danilo to Manchester City - being announced this weekend, it's clear that the Premier League is nearly certainly the main destination for the world's top players right now.

Danilo is expected to undergo his medical in Los Angeles before being unveiled as a City player in a deal worth a reported €30 million (£27m).
