Manchester City will complete a club record £64million deal for Ruben Dias, ending a two-year pursuit of the Benfica centre back.
Dias will become the most expensive player in City's history - eclipsing the £62.8m paid to Atletico Madrid for Rodri a year ago - with Nicolas Otamendi joining Benfica for £13.7m as part of the deal.
The 23-year-old Portugal international has passed a medical but the transfer will only go through once Otamendi has been given the all-clear by his new club.
