Manchester City complete signing of Sergio Gomez

Manchester City have completed the signing of Sergio Gomez from Anderlecht.

The left-back has passed a medical and signed a four-year deal with the Premier League champions, who agreed a fee of £11m with the Belgian side last week.

 

Gomez impressed under the management of former City captain Vincent Kompany last season, having joined Anderlecht from Borussia Dortmund.

The 21-year-old scored seven goals and provided 15 assists in 50 appearances across all competitions in 2021/22, earning the Spaniard the club’s Player of the Season accolade.

City have confirmed the deal on the club’s official website, with Gomez expressing his excitement at completing his move to the Etihad.

“I am incredibly proud and happy to have joined Manchester City,” Gomez said.

“City are the best team in England and in Pep Guardiola I have a chance to learn and develop under the most outstanding manager in world football.

“To be able to be part of this club is a dream come true for me and something any young player would aspire to.

“The number of trophies City have won over the past few years has been incredible and the style of football the team plays under Pep is the most exciting in Europe.

“Playing for and being guided by Pep and his coaches is going to be very special.

“I’ve heard so much about the City fans and how passionate they are, so I can’t wait to get started and to try and help the Club achieve even more.”

Gomez will arrive to provide depth to City’s full-back options, following the sale of Oleksandr Zinchenko to Arsenal earlier in the window.

City had been interested in a deal to sign Marc Cucurella from Brighton, but were unwilling to match the Seagulls’ valuation of the Spaniard, who has since signed for Chelsea.
