Benfica have confirmed goalkeeper Ederson is joining Manchester City.

The Portuguese giants have confirmed the £35million sale of goalkeeper Ederson to Manchester City.

The Brazilian No 1 will become City’s second high-profile capture of the summer after Benfica released a statement on Thursday, detailing his departure.

The Benfica statement revealed that 50 per cent of the ‘capital gain’ to come out of Ederson’s move will be passed on to third parties.

The transfer will take City’s spending to almost £80m this summer, following the acquisition of winger Bernardo Silva from Monaco.
