Man City confirm first summer signing

Manchester City have confirmed Pablo Moreno will join the club at the start of the summer transfer window, signing from Juventus.

Moreno, 18, moved to Italy in the summer of 2018 after graduating from the famed Barcelona youth academy.

The youngster featured in a senior match day squad under Massimiliano Allegri but has not been used by Maurizio Sarri.

MEN Sport understand City will pay a fee in the region of £9million for the Spaniard.

As part of the deal, City forward Felix Correira will go the other way. The Portuguese joined from Sporting Lisbon last summer but has spent the season on loan at AZ Alkmaar. He has travelled to Turin to complete a medical at the club.

City and Juventus worked together last summer in a deal that saw Joao Cancelo join the Blues with Danilo moving to the Serie A champions.

Moreno could be loaned out to City Football Group side Girona next season to aid his development.

The news comes after City confirmed an agreement had been reached with Bayern Munich for Leroy Sane to join the Bavarian club.

Bayern will pay £54.8m to sign the Germany international who is set to travel to Germany for a medical in the next 24 hours.

Pep Guardiola has previously stated the club will not seek a replacement for the 24-year-old in the transfer window.
