Man City sign Croatia defender Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig


Manchester City have completed the signing of Croatia centre-back Josko Gvardiol on a five-year deal from RB Leipzig for 90m euros.

He is the second most expensive defender of all time after Harry Maguire, who joined Manchester United for £80m from Leicester City in 2019.

Gvardiol, 21, has impressed in his two seasons at Leipzig after joining from Dynamo Zagreb in July 2021.

“I have always dreamed of one day playing in England,” he said.

“To be doing so now with Manchester City – after the season they have just had – is a real honour for me.”

Gvardiol, who has been capped 21 times by Croatia and helped his side finish third at the 2022 World Cup as well as runners-up to Spain in this year’s Nations League, will wear the number 24 shirt.
