Manchester City have announced the signing of Sergio Gomez, with the left-back joining from Anderlecht on a four-year deal.
After missing out on signing Marc Cucurella, the English club turned their attention to Gomez in their search for a new left-back this summer.
He quickly agreed personal terms with Pep Guardiola’s side but Anderlecht rejected their first offer of €13 million, holding out for €15 million upfront.
That demand has now been met, and the 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract expiring in 2026.
“I am incredibly proud and happy to have joined Manchester City,” Gomez said.
“City are the best team in England and in Pep Guardiola I have a chance to learn and develop under the most outstanding manager in world football.
“To be able to be part of this club is a dream come true for me and something any young player would aspire to.
“The number of trophies City have won over the past few years has been incredible and the style of football the team plays under Pep is the most exciting in Europe.
“Playing for and being guided by Pep and his coaches is going to be very special.
“I’ve heard so much about the City fans and how passionate they are, so I can’t wait to get started and to try and help the Club achieve even more.”
It was initially thought that Man City would send Gomez out on loan for the year, but Guardiola has now said that he’ll remain at the club.
