Manchester City have completed the signing of defender Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig in a deal worth £77.6m.
Pep Guardiola revealed on Friday that the 21-year-old was undergoing a medical ahead of his arrival and he now becomes City’s second signing of the summer after fellow Croatia international Mateo Kovacic.
Gvardiol has signed a five-year deal City, who won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League last season.
The former Dinamo Zagreb defender told City’s website: “I have always dreamed of one day playing in England and to be doing so now with Manchester City – after the season they have just had – is a real honour for me.
“Anyone who saw Manchester City play last season knows they are the best team in the world. To win the treble says everything you need to know about the quality this team has.
“To be joining City is something very special for me and my family. To h
ave the chance to work with Pep Guardiola will be amazing. I know I am not yet the finished article and I am sure my game will progress under the best coach in football.
“To be linking up with Mateo Kovacic will also be special. He’s a top footballer and I hope we can both help City achieve another successful season in 2023/24 and then beyond.”
