‘Finally, Very good signing, Welcome’ – Man City fans reacts as Ruben Dias bids Benfica an emotional goodbye


Man City target Ruben Dias has given the strongest hint that he’s about to come to the Etihad, after he scored in a 2-0 win over Moreirense on Saturday in what could be his final game for Benfica.

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.

According to TVI24 as per Sport Witness, Dias could even fly to England on Sunday to take his medical, before officially signing for City

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.
