Pep Guardiola can land the next Ruben Dias with Man City proposal for £86m sensation who “can’t be stopped”

Manchester City have demonstrated in recent years that they are not afraid to sign players from other clubs in Europe and beyond.

Ruben Dias, who joined the Citizens from Benfica in September 2020 for a cost of £65 million, is one player who the Citizens have lately brought in from abroad.

Since then, the Portugal international has made 89 appearances in all competitions for Pep Guardiola’s team.

In those appearances, the centre-back has three goals, five assists, and two Premier League titles to his name.

With the summer transfer market being open, Manchester City may be able to bring in their own version of Dias to the Etihad.

City were linked with a summer move for Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt earlier this month.

The centre-back has already made 117 appearances for Juventus, scoring eight goals and providing three assists.

As a relatively young defender at one of Europe’s top teams, the 22-year-old could easily follow Dias’ lead and transfer to the Premier League.

After progressing through the Ajax junior system, the Dutchman made 117 senior appearances for the club before moving to Italy in the 2019 summer transfer window for an initial fee of £67.8 million.

After finding the net 13 times and providing seven assists for Ajax, the centre-back has already made 117 appearances for Juventus, scoring eight goals and providing three assists.

When comparing De Ligt’s last Serie A season to Dias’ most recent Premier League season with City, the two each won more than 20 tackles while also producing 76 blocks, 80 interceptions, and 208 clearances.

Mino Raiola described De Ligt as a player who “can’t be stopped,” and he surely has what it takes to create the same kind of impact at City that Dias has made since his arrival.

Moving forward, if the Citizens want to plan for the future, landing a €100 million (£86 million) agreement for the Juventus star this summer may be a very wise investment for them to make, similar to their deal to capture the former Benfica prodigy.
