Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica. The 23-year-old cost €40m (£34.7m) and becomes their second signing of the summer after Bernardo Silva.
The fee paid for Ederson is a British record for a goalkeeper but falls short of the €53m Juventus paid for Buffon in 2001.
“With Pep Guardiola, City are growing more and more. He is putting in place a young team for the future. Those were important factors in making my decision. Manchester City has an amazing squad. I think they managed to have a good season. Next season, we will have to be focused to achieve the goal of winning trophies.”
