Dias signs new long-term Man City deal

Ruben Dias has signed a new six-year contract with Manchester City. Having joined from Benfica last September, Dias’ new deal will keep him at the Club through until the summer of 2027. The 24-year-old arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Benfica during last summer’s transfer window and went on to make 50 appearances in all competitions, scoring once as Pep Guardiola’s side lifted both the Premier League title and retained the Carabao Cup as well as reaching a first-ever Champions League final. In addition, Dias was voted both the Premier League Player of the Season and the Etihad Player of the Season and last week he also was announced as the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League Defender of the Season. “I’m very happy to sign the new deal,” Dias said.
