Manchester City is one of the best clubs in the world so I’m really pleased to sign. We have many great talents in the team and a fantastic manager in Pep Guardiola that I can learn so much from. I’m looking forward to showing the City fans what I can do and I think we’ll have a great future together.
The Brazilian will remain with Palmeiras on loan until the end of the domestic season before linking up with his new teammates in January.
