"The day has come to say "see you soon" to the family who welcomed me as a child, in search of a dream, and introduced me to the world", he said.

On Friday, City confirmed a deal to bring in defender Kyle Walker from Tottenham in a deal that could reach £50million.

Although he is apparently less likely to have the immediate first-team involvement of his compatriot Ederson, Douglas becomes the fifth Brazilian on the books at the Etihad Stadium, also joining Fernandinho, Fernando and Gabriel Jesus.
