Sergio Gomez has revealed that he supported Manchester City growing up, after signing a four-year deal with the Premier League champions.

The Spaniard was announced as the Blues’ fourth summer signing on Tuesday, arriving from Belgian side Anderlecht.

Gomez has signed a four-year contract at the Etihad Stadium and will remain part of Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad this season. The deal with Anderlecht is worth €13 million plus add-ons.

“I am incredibly proud and happy to have joined Manchester City,” said Gomez, who has represented Spain at Under-21 level.

“City are the best team in England and in Pep Guardiola I have a chance to learn and develop under the most outstanding manager in world football.

“To be able to be part of this club is a dream come true for me and something any young player would aspire to.

Gomez also went ahead to revealed that he grew up supporting City as a youngster thanks to his brother.

“I was a City fan when I was a kid,” Gomez added, proudly showing a picture of himself in a City shirt as proof.

“When we were kids, my brother used to support City. He’s the main reason I became a fan as well. Once he was on a school trip to London and I asked him to bring a David Silva shirt.

“At that time, he was wearing the No 21 shirt and he was my favourite player because I used to play in his position when I was a kid.

Manchester City fans have taken to social media to express their excitement on knowing Gomez is a true blue.
