Danilo undergoing Man City medical ahead of switch from Real Madrid – report

The move ends two less than successful years for the former Porto player, who joined Madrid for around 35 million euros ($40.81 million) two years ago, but failed to win a regular place in the Madrid side due to the form of Dani Carvajal, reports Xinhua news agency.

"There has been strong interest from other clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola", Danilo told his new club's official website.

"But it's also the ambitious project of the club that convinced me to come".

He hopes to enjoy similar success with the Citizens, adding: "Collectively it was a great season because the team won La Liga and the Champions League".

Danilo is now set to undergo a medical in the United States, where both Madrid and City remain on their respective pre-season tours. Undoubtedly it was very important for me being on the pitch and always winning.

He has predominantly played in the right-back position in the past but it is understood that Guardiola sees the Brazilian playing in a left-back role or that of a holding midfielder. "I said he's a player from Real Madrid, so we are talking with not too much players but three or four players to try, if possible, to join us for not only the next season but the next three, four, five years because all of them are so, so young players".

Morata was used as a back-up player during his only campaign under Zidane at the Bernabeu, starting just 18 games in all competitions but still managing to net 20 goals.

The Brazil defender is poised to become City's fifth signing of the transfer window, following Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Douglas Luiz and Kyle Walker.
