The 23-year-old who had been linked with Tottenham earlier this summer is on the brink of a move to City in a deal which could see Nicolas Otamendi head in the opposite direction.
After the match, Dias said: “I am very happy. It was a very important game for me and to be able to consecrate the game with a goal, it was very special for me. It is a special moment and I think everyone already knows why.”
With just over a week to go until the transfer window closes, City will have finally bring in another top quality centre-back to the club following the earlier summer capture of Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.
Dias – contracted to the Eagles until the summer of 2024 – has already turned out for his current side on two occasions during the 2020-21 campaign.

In reaction to Diaz’s hint shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra, Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions with many happy to see the defender at the Etihad.
Glad to have him, Welcome 👊🏼
