Manchester City's bid for Vasco da Gama's midfielder Douglas Luiz Soares has been reportedly accepted by the Brazilian club as Pep Guardiola's outfit are wrapping up a deal for youngster.The 20 year-old was left out of Vasco's squad for their clash with Vitoria as he is preparing to leave for England, says Globoesporte.Douglas will move to City for an initial fee of €13m rising to €16m based on appearances and success.
The Brazil U20 star has managed 39 first team appearances with Vasco and was also interesting Borussia Dortmund and Monaco.Should he complete his move to City, Douglas will become the richest transfer in Vasco history. It is expected that Luiz will initially be loaned out, possibly to Spanish club Girona in whom City are about to acquire a near 50 per cent stake, rather than immediately join Pep Guardiola's first team squad. A Brazil Under-20 international, Luiz is tipped for a bright future and is regarded as one of the country's most promising young talents alongside City striker Gabriel Jesus.
