Manchester City sign Danilo from Real Madrid

"Danilo has gone and (Alvaro) Morata too", Zidane said, a day after Spain striker Morata completed a move to Chelsea in a deal that could be worth up to 80 million euros ($92.2 million).

"There has been strong interest from other Clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola".

On the eve of Real's pre-season friendly against United at Santa Clara, California, Zidane spoke in Los Angeles about the 32-year-old Portuguese forward who is now on vacation.

Danilo wants to end Manchester City's wait to win the Champions League after joining from holders Real Madrid.

The 26-year-old joined from Porto in 2015 and won La Liga and the UEFA Champions League double with Madrid last season.

According to a report in Sky Sports, Danilo is set to undergo a medical in the US to complete his move to Manchester City.

"I'm looking forward to working with him".

If Benjamin Mendy is indeed signed from Monaco as expected, Danilo will be his backup as well, which means Guardiola might be happy with just three full-backs instead of four. "He has to come back in and we'll look at when he'll get some playing time".

"I don't have a favourite position", Danilo added.

With another huge pair of transfers - Alvaro Morata to Chelsea and Danilo to Manchester City - being announced this weekend, it's clear that the Premier League is nearly certainly the main destination for the world's top players right now. "I only believe in one thing - whenever I've spoken to him, he has been very relaxed".

Danilo only played 17 times in La Liga last campaign for Madrid with Dani Carvajal the club's main right-back. Undoubtedly it was very important for me being on the pitch and always winning.
