Manchester City has been busy early on this summer, and Pep Guardiola appears to have retrieved the goalkeeper he has wanted for the foreseeable future.
The four-time Premier League champions announced on Thursday the club has signed Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson from Portuguese champions Benfica.
The transfer fee is reportedly valued at over $45 million after City acquired the 23-year-old on a six-year contract.
Ederson is expected to be Guardiola’s goalkeeper of choice heading into next season after 2016 signing Claudio Bravo underwhelmed in his first season at the Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens have already gone out and signed Portuguese playmaker Bernardo Silva from Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco ahead of the 2017/18 season.
