After the elimination of the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Olympique Lyonnais, The Manchester City is working on the preparation of its squad for next season, with the aim of taking a new leap in quality and once again being one of the main candidates to win both the Premier League and the Champions League. And, after closing two signings a few weeks ago, they are one step away from completing a new addition that would help them continue to renew their squad for the future. We are talking about Douglas Luiz.
As reported Globe Sports on its website, Manchester City has decided to exercise the repurchase option and acquire the services of Douglas Luiz for the next season. A signing that would come to give one more variant to Pep Guardiola in the ruffle area and to be able to add pieces to have a much wider wardrobe background.
The 22-year-old Brazilian midfielder belongs to Aston Villa and would become City’s third addition to next season. It comes from being one of the revelations of the last Premier Legue in his position and was a key piece in the permanence of his team in the elite category of English football.
The intention of the citizens is to pay the repurchase option for 25 million euros, only nine million more than the figure in which it was sold to Aston Villa itself. A signing that would come to bring more variants to Guardiola, and that could become a constant piece in the rotation in order to compete in four tournaments of different demands. A return expected by all in Manchester and that now has coherence after its great season.
