Manchester City Sign Benfica Goalkeeper For Record Fee

Manchester City have agreed a deal with Benfica for the £35m signing of goalkeeper Ederson Moraes, making him the most expensive goalkeeper in the history of European football.

The 23-year-old broke into the Benfica team last March and has made 37 appearances for the club.

“Benfica has reached agreement with Manchester City for the amount of 40m euros,” the club told the Portuguese stock exchange.

The Brazil Under-23 cap is yet to make his full international debut, but is in the squad for the forthcoming friendlies against Argentina and Australia.
