Manchester City are reportedly closing in on a deal for Benfica defender Ruben Dias in the January transfer window.

Read more: Pep Guardiola has claimed that Phil Foden is the only player Manchester City will never sell — even for €500million.



Guardiola has been forced to use Fernandinho at centre-back, alongside Nicolas Otamendi, but plans to sign a new centre-back in January to solve City’s defensive woes.



City failed to replace former captain Vincent Kompany over the summer and both Aymeric Laporte and John Stones are long-term absentees through injury.

An injury crisis at the back has played its part as reigning Premier League champions City find themselves eight points behind Liverpool in the title race.

Dias’ current deal at Benfica is not due to expire until the summer of 2024, although the Portugal international has a £59m release clause that his club are working on increasing.

And according to the Daily Mirror, it is Manchester United target Dias who has emerged as their top option.
